unhappy hosta

 I got the following from one of my customers, and I don't have any idea
of what might be going on with her hosta. Can anyone help? Jean Bawden,
Madison, WI

"Hi Jean, I hope you can help me with a problem I seem to be having with
Sum and Substance.  I've had this hosta for years, without a problem. 
This year's growth appears to be halted or stunted.  The pips emerged and
some leaves have unfurled, but remain small.  Other pips are up about 2-3
inches but remain unfurled.  The plant has been in this stage of growth
for at least two weeks if not more.  I can't see anything that looks like
a disease, virus or pest affecting the plant.  I am having a problem with
cutworms this year, but not on this plant."
