Q.Problem with Hosta

Anonymous added on May 24, 2014 | Answered

We have a new hosta plant this year. It is a large leaf plant with yellow-green leaves. The bottom leaves are breaking off near the center stem of the plant. You will find one or two each day broken off. Do you have any idea as to what is happening? We see no evidence of animals in the area. Please help if you can. We have had hosta for years and have not seen this problem.
