Will hostas come back?
Half the time you can't get our co-op landscape guys to do what is really necessary in the yard. Now they've gotten the raking-up-leaves bug and raked the leaves out of the circular 6" high fence surrounding my little hosta garden. The ground is now clean of leaves--and some of my hosta markers, the morons. There were still semi-alive leaves of Cherish and other hostas under the leaves. Now they are not to be seen. Do you think their underground roots will sprout again come spring? I am astonished to see my Marmalade heuchera still in perfect shape and alyssum still blooming at this date in the same garden. Crazy!
