Where to Buy Unique Hosts in Capital District?

Anyone know where I can get something other than run of the mill hostas in Schenectady, Saratoga, Albany, Troy area?

I'm interested in things like Tokudama Flavocircinalis, Captain Kirk, Olive Bailey Langdon, Mouse Ears, etc.

Even the good garden stores seem to all have the same half a dozen standard types.

I know the perfect spot for you. It is right off of Rt 67 in Charlton/ Galway. Shades of green 2036 Cook Road

Beautiful gardens and hundreds of hostas.

That's family is from Charlton, so I know the area well. Thanks so much!

I also heard about this place over the weekend (but Charlton is much closer):

I have been to both these places,both great. In Glens Falls you could go to Meads, Watkins or Northern Gardens. Not many places that I know of in Saratoga. Troys in Latham sometimes has something different. Faddegans in Schenectady(?) used to get some different hosta(I got Tattoo there). The hosta society has a sale at Faddegans in August every year. The owner of Glenbrook is in the Hosta Society.
How many hosta do you have?
