Re: dying hosta

This sounds like Southern Blight.  Bad news: at least in my garden, even
pure bleach don't do nuttin once it's started.  Good news: on 'Paradise
Power' the leaves were absolutely wiped out in a week, but the crown is
intact! Wonder of wonders, the whole plant has sent dormant buds out and is
coming back nicely.  It seems that some plants are a lot more susceptible
to this than others, because nothing else except some 'Golden Tiara' I just
planted were affected.  But you have to catch it very early and treat
