My LS Midight Miss is unhappy

This hosta has a severe iron deficiency (yellow with green veins prominent). I'm not sure how to "doctor" it. I've read something about Lakeside hosta needing epson salts (something about the soils in Tennessee). I've fertilized it with water soluble fertilizer, but nothing has changed (yet).

I'm sure it's from neglect. Last year was a bear for me. The weather was really hot and dry. I was still in physical therapy for my shoulder replacement. On top of that, I was really whiny and stayed in the house way too much.

If you are not familiar with this variety, it's supposed to be dark green.


edited to add: I have some Ironite, if you think that is appropriate.
