We did not collect dues for two years during covid, but are ready to go back to having dues and an official membership for our society. Dues collected now are good all through 2023, but we encourage those interested to pay their dues as soon as convenient. Dues are $15.

More information on dues go to Membership Information.


Membership in AHS is encouraged. The Hosta Journal (AHS) published three times each year is abundant with hosta information and photographs of national tour gardens and the latest hosta hybrids.
