failure to thrive
I have had several hostas that just didn't come back this year. We had a pretty mild winter and no one suffered from lack of moisture or dormancy. I can't pinpoint one common denominator among those that failed. I have had all of them for at least 2 years, but no longer than 5. Some are in pots, some in the ground and none have been moved. Is there a short life span to hostas? Are some just weenies? The varieties I lost are : Golden Tiara, Great Expectaions, Abiqua Drinking Gourd, Frances Williams, Flavino(something), Mama Mia. Any ideas would be appreciated.
