Hosta Plant


Anonymous added on August 21, 2011 | Answered

After the small purple flower falls off of the tall stalks that grow from within the hosta, should I cut them down? What purpose is that stalk?

Yes, you can cut the stalk--other than holding the blooms, it really has no purpose. Many people actually cut the stalks prior to flowering to allow more energy to go into the foliage growth.
