Good afternoon. I have had Hosta's in my garden for years (and years) but I have never seen one put out a spike like this. Anyone have any suggestions? Not worried, just fascinated by this new development.

That is one of mine does every yr. This is hoe the flower ends up. I thought it was the soil but when I moved I moved it to the new house and it still blooms like that every yr.

@Rose I have no idea the name I have 25 hostas that I purchased when I purchased a house that was total shade. It was one of those cheap landscape 25 no name just something to cover a hillside.

It is the strangest thing I have asked on different Hosta sites if anyone has seen this before. But it does it every yr.

FYI I named it Sir Mutant

Maybe send a pic to Tony Avent at Plant Delights, or Bob Solberg at Green Hill Farm Hosta. They have both be good about answering questions for me.

There seems to be a lot of such weird flowers on hostas this year. I've got a couple and an out-of-town friend emailed me about one of hers. Environmental???
