Conventions – National

Green Bay, Wisconsin – Jun 12-15, 2019

Attendees of the AHS national convention certainly have an affinity toward hosta, but they also have an affinity toward other hosta lovers! Maybe that’s why it’s called the “friendship plant” — it brings people together.

Join hundreds of other hosta enthusiasts from around the country and the world for the 51st annual convention held in Green Bay, Wisconsin June 12–15, 2019, hosted by the Green & Gold Hosta Society.

We welcome you to beautiful and picturesque Northeast Wisconsin where you’ll tour iconic gardens, hear world-renowned speakers, shop a variety of vendors, participate in friendly competitions and a live auction, eat great food and, most importantly, enjoy the company of fellow gardeners and friends, both new and old.
