Green Hill Farm and its online division Green Hill Hostas is a family business owned by Bob Solberg. We specialize in hostas and are one of the leading introducers of new hostas, many of them hybridized by Bob as well as other leading hosta hybridizers. We take great pride in the quality of our plants and our hostas are known for their very large root systems. (Great roots make a great growing hosta!)
Hosta hybridizing has been a passion of Bob’s for almost 30 years. In 2008 he was awarded the Eunice Fisher Distinguished Hybridizer Merit Award by the American Hosta Society for his work with hostas. He has introduced about 70 hostas to date and has plans to add five or so to that number each year. 'Guacamole', introduced in 1994 and Hosta of the Year in 2002 is probably his best known cultivar and is probably in your garden. 'Orange Marmalade' PP#16,742 is his first patented hosta and destined for a wide distribution. ‘Corkscrew’, ‘Ginsu Knife’, ‘Cracker Crumbs’, ‘Crumb Cake’, ‘Tongue Twister’, ‘First Frost’, ‘One Man’s Treasure’, ‘Smiley Face’, ‘Curly Fries’, and 'First Blush' (currently one of the hottest hostas) are some of his better introductions.
