My variegated hosta has done wonderfully in the same spot for two years. This year, however, it sprouted and has not grown. What could be the problem?

My variegated hosta has been in the same spot for two years and done wonderfully until this year. It sprouted and the plant is just not growing. could it be a disease?

Probably not a disease but some cultural or environmental setback. Hosta usually grows when the weather warms up in the spring and really grows by leaps and bounds in the summertime. I wouldn't worry about the plant at this point. Its internal clock is directing its growth.

Best wishes with your garden!
