Plantain lily is an old fashioned common name for hosta. You won't need to cut the foliage down in the fall; the plants will die back completely when freezing weather occurs and the dead leaves will disappear over the winter months. Next spring, you should see new shoots emerge from the ground. When they unfurl, they will look beautiful. Enjoy your hostas!
