Re: Since we are on id'ing and stuff....

So, do you think it possible the damage to your hosta might have been related to early season foot (or hoof) traffic???

As Kitty suggested, I looked for slugs by/on the hosta... nope, not here
yet.... shortly I am sure!... Wildlife here is unreal this year. Just
tonight as I was trying to take some pictures, here is this squirrel
sitting on the bench eating a nut he found. Didn't care that I was 2 ft
from him... then there are the rabbits... who I have to get my mothers
dog out to chase or they just look at me like- yeah, what is your
problem!... add those morning doves... Had a baby last week, and sure
enough, planted a few things in my container on the railing of front
porch.. they moved in within an hour. Didn't even think about moving
when I was working/building the bog, dirt flying, liner inserted... just
a ft from them... nope, didn't move, could care less.:) Of course I also
have many other birds, raccoons, snakes, and who knows what!

Cathy, I always let anything come up when I add new dirt. You never know
what treasures you will find. I do get rid of known problems as soon as
they surface, but others are left to see what happens (much to the
aggravation of my neighbors) This 'weed' was in an area that was put in
4 years ago... will let you all know what it turns out to be...


Reference the hosta -- it looks like one of mine! My DH stepped on it
just as its leaves were poking through the ground, inflicting crushing
damage on most of them. That "weed" looks interesting. I usually let
the interesting ones grow until they demonstrate they have no
social value.
