Answer: Hostas send out a flower stalk once each season, usually in late summer. The flowers are not especially attractive, and most gardeners simply cut back the stalk when it appears. Cutting off the flower stalk will not harm the plants, and only one stalk should be produced from the center of each hosta plant. You can expect your hostas to multiply from the roots and crowns, and eventually they'll form large clumps of plants. You can divide the clumps when they overgrow their garden spot.
