Hosta virus X (HVX) is a damaging and prevalent virus of hosta potentially capable of infecting all varieties. Hosta is the only known host of HVX at this time. The virus is spread mechanically by contaminated tools, hands or any activity that puts plants in contact with infected plant sap. HVX is not thought to be spread by insects or nematodes. Some Hosta varieties are more susceptible to HVX than others. Symptoms are quite variable among varieties with some plants showing no symptoms at all. There is no treatment for virus infected plants. The only control method is to purchase and propagate from non-infected plants and identify and destroy any existing infected plants.
