Mike has been growing hostas since 1986 and has been trying to hybridize almost as long. He and his wife, Kathy, maintain a large collection of modern cultivars at their Smug Creek Gardens.

Eric Hsu (right) became plant information coordinator at Chanticleer Garden in 2011, and before that worked with some of the most prestigious woody-plant collections in the Eastern United States. Eric is a frequent contributor to "The Plantsman," the respected quarterly published by the Royal Horticultural Society in the United Kingdom.
