Hail Damaged Hosta Leaves

An end of May thunderstorm brought heavy rain and HAIL which shredded the leaves of my hosta.
Will the plants recover this season or must I wait until next season for the plants to flourish?

Doug says that some will regrow new leaves and some won't - it all depends on the varieties you have. The practical answer here is to wait and see if they do regrow. If so - prune off the damaged ones carefully. If they don't regrow, then leave them alone and wait for next year.

Gardening is indeed a "next year" sport. :-)
