The Theresa Schutt Hosta House is tucked away on the north side of the Cafferty Building. It was built and dedicated in 1997 in honor of Theresa Schutt of Woolstock, a devoted volunteer, former Board member, and well-respected hosta enthusiast. Funds were contributed by the Russ O’Harra, the Midwest, and the Harshbarger Hosta Societies. This area contains many of the oldest hosta cultivars planted at the Arboretum growing beneath a wooden, Japanese-style shade structure. With colors ranging from bright green to gold, blue and variegated and sizes from miniature to extra-large, hundreds of hosta varieties show off the diversity of this genus.
