What causes a hosta plant to turn pale--including the stems--after being stored during winter in pots?


A hosta plant could turn pale for many reasons, but my guess is that if your hosta is turning pale in winter lack of sunlight is the culprit.

Although they are shade plants, indirect sunlight is still needed for your plants to thrive.

In most colder zones the plant will completely drop leaves and hibernate during the winter months. So when your plant regrows in the spring time it should be as green as it was the year before if you put your plants in the same location.
