RE: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #722


I had a few plants do this last spring, bloomscape before leaves.
Unfortunately, it was on one of my favorite seedlings and it wasn't strong
enough to make it through that and died. On other plants that may have put
up one or two leaves and then flowered, I noticed that the bloomscape was
twisted like a corkscrew like the picture in Paul Aden's "The Hosta Book".
Interesting, these Hosta plants....
