Re: hosta problem

Well, I did dig up the Golden Tiara and everything looked fine.  No gnawing,
nice roots, no tunnels, nothing disturbed in the area.  I took it in to CES.
The Hort Ed looked through it checking for insects, tried several leaves
under the microscope.  That's when he saw the fungus.  These 2 Hosta are at
the lowest, shadiest point of the planting that is bounded by rocks laid
above and below the soil line.  It has been fairly wet this summer and
recently some very cool weather.  This is what seems to have caused the
problem.  I'll dig up Candy Hearts now too and I'll divide and pot them all,
discarding the leaves.  They should be fine next year.  I suppose I could
treat them with a fungicide by they don't really help much after the plant
has the problem.
