I live in the Boston, MA area.  I also have found several hostas reduced in 
size this year.  They are still viable.  They still look healthy. I lost a 
couple of plants, but they were not my more successful endeavors.  It does 
interest me that a plant that increased every year and that you have owned for more 
than four years suddenly decreases.   The ones in particular that really come 
to mind are Jewel of the Nile, milies memories, loyalist, lucy vitols, 
donahue's piecrust,  Millies memories is next to a venusa that doubled in size from 
last year to this. There are others that seem smaller but those five are reduced 
to 1/4 to 1/2 their size from last year (less divisions smaller size) No 
noticeable animal insect problem.    We had severe cold this year.  Would that be 
the reason?  Thanks for your imput Chris from Braintree, MA
