I have strange growths coming from my new hosta plants. They are growing stalks of leaves where they bloom?

Question by Lea C: I have strange growths coming from my new hosta plants. They are growing stalks of leaves where they bloom?
I have six new hostas and they (in May) have started to grow vertical stalks where they would normally bloom in the fall. Is this normal, why is this happening, should I prune them?? Please give advice.

Answer by Rae
Don’t prune them, its normal. If you prune them you won’t have any blooms during the summer/fall.

    I brought one home with that weird stalk just to see what it is… mine has blooms!…. not the flowers on the tall thin stem like usual, but there on that thick stalk!…. the leaves that look kinda ‘rolled up’ each sports a flower as it unrolls!.. and oh, so fragrant!!…. mine is a Blue Bressinham hosta…. what’s yours?… this must be something new in the hybridizing???… watch and see what yours does…. email me if you like….here’s mine…

    My hostas do bloom in mid-June or so, and I’m in Indiana, so chances are they’re putting out a stalk for their flowers.
