2019 Hosta of the Year

'Lakeside Paisley Print'

2019 Hosta of the Year


2019 Hosta of the year! 'Lakeside Paisley Print'


Introduced in 2011, hosta 'Lakeside Paisley Print' features heart-shaped, wavy, green leaves of better than average substance. It is the interesting markings in the center of the leaves that makes this one so alluring. Narrow creamy white markings run down the center of the leaves and fan out in a feathery pattern. Cream petioles. This beauty has been described as "one of Mary's best introductions". (Chastain)

Each year the American Hosta Growers Association selects 'the best of the best', and honors one variety as "Hosta of the Year". These special selections are acknowledged for being unique, easy to grow and loved by many. These plants are usually the cornerstones of most hosta collector's gardens making these selections a good choice for beginning collectors and gardeners alike.

This hosta is a winner of the prestigious "Popularity Poll" from the American Hosta Society. This variety has been named one of the very favorites of all hostas by the majority of the AHS members in an annual poll. Basically, this plant is "loved by all". An excellent choice for your garden.


2019 Perennial of the Year

Stachys monieri 'Hummelo'

2019 Perennial of the Year


Stachys monieri 'Hummelo'


Common name: Betony

Unlike Stachys byzantina (Lamb's Ear), this species forms large, rounded clumps of green, long and narrow, textured leaves. It is lovely even when it's not in bloom. From early thru midsummer, sturdy spikes of lavender-rose flowers shoot up through the foliage, putting on quite a display.

Though this plant is relatively unknown to many gardeners, it makes a unique addition to any sunny border.  Once you try it, you'll see that it goes with just about everything else in the garden.  It is very easy to grow and deserves to be planted more widely in American landscapes.

Stachys m. 'Hummelo' received the highest rating out of 22 Stachys studied in the Plant Evaluation Trials at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The trial was run from 1998-2004 by Richard G. Hawke. Both 'Helene von Stein' (aka 'Big Ears') and 'Silver Carpet' also received very high scores.

Stachys 'Hummelo' has been grown and sold at K&K Gardens for several years. Although it wasn't available the last two years, it will be back in 2019! This is a wonderful perennial for hot, dry, and full sun locations. It also holds it's flower clusters for several months.
