The Gardens at Turkey Run, Pine Island, MN:

Due to recent storm damage, our gardens will be closed the rest of this 2017 summer.

These are some of the LARGE HOSTAS that we like:

    The picture on the plant tag is a picture of h.'World Cup' in our display garden.
    In 2012, Mark Zillis, Q ad Z Nursery, who had done the tissue culture for 'World Cup', looked at the 'World Cup' in our garden, and was impressed with it's size, color, leaf texture and shape. We also indicated how much our customers were impressed with 'World Cup' and wanted to purchase it - and we hoped Q and Z would offer it again.
    Thus began a sequence of events that lead to h.'World Cup' being put back into production, a picture of our plant being put on the plant tag, and now being named AHGA Hosta of the Year for 2018.
