For some yet unexplained reason, certain large leaf hostas with blue-green or yellow leaves with marginal variegation suffer a symptom called spring desiccation burn. The leaves split and turn a rusty color around the damaged tissue which can make the plants look unsightly. Similar looking cultivars  which are NOT affected by this problem are listed below. Hostas that ARE affected by spring desiccation burn are listed separately.
