Howdy! [wayey]

I've been noticing my hostas all dying slowly - at first I thought it was leaf burn, but now it just looks kinda like they're just finishing up their year - They still have the flower stalks on them (some of em) I suppose (now that I think about it) I was supposed to pop those off. Guess my question is, is this normal? I mean, is it their 'time'? I can't remember how long hostas live, it's been so long since I had any until now...

Thanks! [Wink]

Yes, some are going to sleep for the winter. But not to worry the first sign of Spring they will be back.
