Are you sure it was voles? I do not have a vole problem, but I planted a
number of hostas in a new bed. One of these was Golden Teacup(s?). Next spring
there was none of it to be found.It simply rotted away.The others did fine. I
think some hostas are inherently "weak," and maybe GT is one such. OR, perhaps
it had a fungus when I purchased it (at a fairly hefty price). 

Does anyone else find it a good grower? It's a great little hosta in the pix I
have seen of it.
