Will Damaged Hosta Crowns Regrow in the Same Year

bruce fee added on April 8, 2012 | Answered

Workers building a new deck for me felt compelled to stomp most of my emerging hosta crowns and also ones that had started to leaf out. A "master gardener" told me that they will come back this year. I don't believe that to be true. Hostas crown but once a season, don't they?

They should be ok and regrow this year. They are amazingly hardy plants. Mine normally have their initial crown eaten off by winter starved deer and they always come back fine and do well for the rest of the summer.
