Anybody ever seen hostas like this? Is it HVX?

I have several hostas that came out of the ground like this. The pics are three different plants in various stages of growth.

They come in small and wrinkled but seem to be growing out of it.

These ones were planted last fall. There are 3 of 7 that are weird looking.

I planted 19 of another subspecies in a different area and I believe they developed similar symptoms on several plants after the first winter. They are in their 3rd year this year and there is only one of the 19 with these issues. The rest are huge and quite healthy.

Maybe it's a first year thing. They seem to grow out of it. Dunno.

Chances are pretty much zero because of location. Also the fact that it has happened to several plants.

These wrinkly ones all came up about 6 weeks after the healthy plants They seem to be growing out of it so that's promising.

I only have 2 Hostas and they seem to get bigger every year and other than that I can't be of any real help. I hope they keep growing and grow out of this funk they are in. Do you ever fertilize them?
