	Is this a recent manifestation in the lady's garden?

The accordion-like leaf syndrome is caused by weather conditions. 
There was a lot of this condition in North MS gardens in late March and
early April following the extreme drop in temperatures in March.  It was
gone by bloom season, late April, having corrected itself by the leaves
either straightening themselves out or browning and falling away from the
clump.  No harm was done to the affected plants.
