About Us

We are Sienna Hosta, a multi award winning specialist hosta grower. We have been growing hostas in the Surrey countryside for many years and now have over 1400 varieties in our collection, many of which are available for sale. We are always on the hunt for new exciting varieties to add to our collection and our range changes and updates regularly.

Our dedicated team have a passion for hostas and grow every plant with care. Every hosta that you order is hand selected before being carefully packaged and sent to you in our 100% biodegradable packaging.

As well as supplying top quality mail order plants we also exhibit at some of the country's biggest flower shows. Our plants have been awarded numerous awards including three Chelsea Gold Medals in 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024. You can see what shows you can find us at this year on our Shows page.

We are honoured to work with His Majesty the King's garden team at Highgrove House and Gardens supplying them hostas to add to their National Collection of Large Leaf and Giant Hostas. Read more about our work at Highgrove by clicking here

Chris of Sienna Hosta

Chris purchased his first hosta in the 1980’s and was instantly enthused with the genus. He has now helped grow the collection to over 1400 varieties, one of which is one of the original specimen Hosta ‘Patriot’ which he acquired when they were first introduced to the European market. Chris has led the design of our show displays including our Chelsea Gold Medal winning displays of 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024.
