It has just been announced that the Hosta Garden at the Springfield Botanical Gardens, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., has been designated an American Hosta Society National Display Garden. The garden was established and is maintained by by the Greater Ozarks Hosta Society. Tom Lakowske, GOHS President, received the phone call yesterday afternoon from member Lee Coates who is attending the AHS National Convention in Milwaukee, WI.
This honor and designation comes after hours of hard work by Tom and other volunteers from the Hosta Society, Friends of the Garden, Master Gardeners of Greene County, other organizations and individuals to develop the garden so it qualified for this special national recognition. Now one of only a few (18) designated display gardens nationwide, what a special asset this garden has become for Springfield and the State of Missouri.
The AHS National Display Garden Program: http://www.americanhostasociety.org/DisplayGardens.html Springfield will be added to this list to become number 18.
