As noted on the About Us page, DVHS holds 4-5 meetings each year. Some are in gardens, with tours, plant auctions, and pot-luck suppers. Others are in libraries or other public spaces, where we can chat and enjoy a presentation by invited guest speakers or by our own local experts.


In addition to our meetings, the DVHS is active in preparing and maintaining public display gardens at local arboretums, and in producing AHS-accredited hosta shows for friendly competition and informing our members and the public about hostas. Please click on the links below for more information.
