Have you closely observed the dormant Hosta crown? See all those brown
"hairs" sticking up - they are about 1/4" - 1/2" long. What are they?
At the HostaLibrary on the home page is a section with the hosta illustration
available. There you will see those hairy things on the base. They are
labeled as old shoots. Hmmmmmm? Skeletons in our hosta pasts perhaps?
