I have many hosta and some didn't get much water during our dry periods this summer (I left those few to nature for water). Those few have lost most leaves. Are they likely going dormant to recover next season, or are they more likely dieing?
Thanks for your insight.

In general, hosta likes rich, moist soils. However, you might be surprised just how tough these plants are. They are likely to recover over the winter months and send up new foliage next spring. I'd give them a chance to show how tough they are. Just leave them alone and see what happens next spring.
