How to Grow Hostas
are native to Japan, China, and Korea, where they grow in moist woodlands, open grasslands, and along stream banks and rivers.In moist, humid climates, use exclusion techniques such as rings of ash around the plants, or use saucers of beer as bait.Plant hostas with ferns, wildflowers, and shade perennials on the north side of a house or under the canopy of large trees.In the darkest recesses between buildings, under carports, or in narrow passages, hostas will grow and thrive if the soil is rich and moist.Take advantage of the fact that hostas emerge late and plant the large open expanses with spring-flowering bulbs and ephemeral wildflowers such as toothworts (Dentaria), spring beauties (Claytonia), and trout lilies (Erythronium).In cooler areas, combine white-flowered H. plantaginea with variegated Japanese silver grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Cabaret'), garden phlox, and other perennials in borders protected from the hottest afternoon sun.Use the medium-size varieties as groundcovers in front of flowering shrubs or in mass plantings of mixed leaf colors and shapes under shade trees. .

Which Hostas Can Grow in the Sun?
In fact, a few varieties benefit from periods of sun exposure to keep their foliage vibrant and colorful.There are, of course, always exceptions, and you might even have a hosta that is basking and thriving in full sun, so it is not a hard and fast rule.Keep an eye on newly planted hostas that receive sun exposure and move them into a shady location if the leaves begin to turn brown around the edges.So if your sunny site is extremely hot or dry, make sure to add drip irrigation to keep your hostas well-watered.Although they're known for their shade-tolerance, most hosta varieties perform well when exposed to a bit of morning sun and afternoon shade.Unfortunately, only trial and error can tell you which types of white hostas can tolerate full sun without burning.White variegated hostas with thin leaves, like 'White Christmas', should be situated in partial shade to maintain its best appearance.If located in full sun, the plant's chlorophyll levels can increase and cause the leaves to pick up a green cast and look less variegated.Based on past growing experience, the American Hosta Society and home gardeners recommend several varieties and cultivars that tolerate sun exposure. Keep in mind that these suggestions vary and are dependent on your location, your exact sun exposure, and, of course, all other growing conditions can impact your own plants.Yellow hosta : ' August Moon', 'Gold Regal', 'Golden Sculpture', 'Rising Sun', 'Squash Casserole', 'Sum and Substance', 'Sun Power'.: August Moon', 'Gold Regal', 'Golden Sculpture', 'Rising Sun', 'Squash Casserole', 'Sum and Substance', 'Sun Power' Yellow variegated hosta : 'Gold Standard', 'Inniswood', 'Regal Splendor', 'Sundance'. .
