RE: Lost Hosta


Josh-

That is it exactly!  Some of my hosta just look like
heck.  Crumpled misshapen leaves, much much smaller 
than usual.  

I keep wanting to think I can  blame it on the very hard
fast cold snap.  None of my plants had gone dormant, as
I am on the water and it keeps me warmer than most areas
during the end of the season.  

All I know is it is making my checkbook look as sickly
as some of my hosta.

Mike-

I have quite a few plants that are...stunted?...this spring, too.  Blue
Angel, August Moon, plantaginea, Frances Williams...all were large,
established plants.  The actual clump size (# of eyes) seems to be about
normal, but the leaves are stunted, some misshapen and just generally
smaller than they were last year.  Is this what your's are like?

I'm hoping they will grow out of it with the next flush of leaves.

Could this be frost damage?  What else?
