Thanks for sharing this view of the convention in Nashville.
I see some familiar companion plants in the mix, and notice the use of containers spread among them. I think containers lift up the body of the hosta so it is more prominent.

Now where else can you find "Elvis Lives In A Pot In Nashville?" Just perfect place for him.

Thanks for sharing your pictures. I was in Nashville in March and enjoyed touring this lovely city very much. Would have loved being at the convention.

Thank you for your comments. In these gardens I have seen many more ways I can use hosta, ornaments, containers and companion planting. The gardens were inspiring.

Because of heat and the lack of topsoil, you will see some commonalities. For example, the type of hosta, the use of containers and raised beds and the somewhat smaller mature size.

Bev,

I have shared the convention photo sites with the other 212 AHS Convention garden owners as we did not have an opportunity to visit each others' gardens prior to the event. It is always nice to see one's garden through another's eye.
