Hosta disease

Asked June 6, 2017, 10:25 AM EDT

I have a LOT of hostas, and nearly all of them are showing signs of disease this year. I'm unsure of how to handle the plants, and am concerned it could be Hvx. This is a large portion of my garden, so I'm hoping there's something I can do to save the plants. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!

Sorry to hear about your hostas.

Based on the photos I think that more than one problem is affecting your plants.

Please follow these links for possible causes...
