I “Hosta” do something about this

After the late April frosts you wander through your landscape and find your Hosta collection is a little under the weather. Hosta la vista baby as you observe “melting” foliage throughout.

Jack Frost nipped at this Hosta’s nose

What happened here? In years where we have an early spring warm up and Hosta foliage emerges followed by late April frosts that get into the 20’s there is damage. The damaged foliage looks ugly and can be a pathway to disease. Select the most damaged of foliage and prune them out. When you cut them out new foliage will flush back out but not be as large or beautiful as the original expectations. Hosta la vista baby.
