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?

Hi Charles,
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?
