I would like to purchase a Hosta 'Niagara Falls' and am curious if anyone has had good, or bad, luck with a mail order company. Any recommendations appreciated!

have ordered from northern grown perennials and was very pleased with the quality/size of their hostas.

I decided to try one called 'Fried Green Tomatoes' with a fragrant bloom instead of Niagara Falls. I've never tried
mail order before, so I appreciate the link!

Shana - I have ordered several times from Hallson Gardens. They are very proactive in eliminating HVX from their stock. They also have a very good forum. Their hostas have very good root structure and depending on the size of your order, you can get a bonus hosta that is free (I think a minimum of 3 will get you the bonus). I got a H. Li'l Abner this year as a bonus as well as H. Dragon Tails. Very pleased with what I have purchased from them.

I also have purchased from Jim's Hosta and plan to purchase at least one designer hosta from Naylor Creek next year.
