Mary Chastain was one of the most prolific and successful Hosta hybridizers ever. She produced some spectacular plants that are sold in every nursery in the country. A few years back Mary retired from hybridizing and Rob Canning bought all of Mary's stock. All of it and moved it North. Right now he only does business by email (friend him on facebook) and on the Hosta Library Auction site. I ordered from him on the HL Auction and then expanded that order through email. The plants that Rob has are spectacularly beautiful, and they are plants that simply aren't available anywhere else. His communication with me through email was quick, friendly and helpful. His shipping costs were reasonable. The plants arrived in great shape and were reasonable in price. if you are looking for some Lakeside Hostas and don't know where to find them, this is the place. Email Rob. He will take care of you.

I just received a shipment from Rob Canning of Lakeside Hostas, and I have to say I was absolutely delighted! This is the new owner of Lakeside Hostas, and he bought the entire nursery of Mary Chastain and moved it to Michigan. He plans to continue Mary's hybridizing as well as keeping the plants available to those interested in the Lakeside varieties.

I visited Mary last summer. Her gardens are a real treat! Quality is very good. A little pricey, but one dosen't mind paying a little more for OS from the originator herself. Will buy from again. Definitely worth the trip! Very friendly people; a wealth of information! Thanks Mary and Roy!

Very nice small display garden. Have bought over the last 3 years. Good quality plants, pricy but many unique hostas. Has over 80 registered hostas of lakeside origin. Look for some fantaastic "Black" hostas in the future. They are now only selling their own registered hostas and seedlings. They will treat you fairly and tell you like it is!
