Q.Why are my Hosta Green plants turning yellow?

Zone Topeka, Kansas - Zone 6a | Anonymous added on July 21, 2020 | Answered

My Hostas are all on the East side of my house. I have 2 Hosta Greens, 2 Plantain Lily hostas, and 2 Variegated Hostas. Since the weather has been really hot, we have been watering them almost every day. The solid green ones have been turning leaves yellow which makes me think I’ve watered them too much, but the Lily and Variegated hostas have not turned yellow. What should I do to bring the hostas back to health that are turning yellow?

I think too you are watering too much even though they aren't all turning yellow. Another reason they turn yellow is leaf scorching. Do the yellow leaves have brown edges? If so, they need to be moved to a shadier location or water more, in the morning, to keep them cooler.
