Re: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #722

 I think you have a good point.  In the past I've taken dormant hosta into the greenhouse in the spring.  And have noticed, this flower scape w/ few leaves, or no leaves.  I know these plants were not dug recently.  I suppose there could be many factors that could influence this occurrence.
