Shade/Light For Hostas

Most hostas grow better with some shade. The ideal shade condition is high, dappled shade. Conversely, hostas will NOT do well in continuous dark shade....such as that provided by low growing evergreens. Green and gold hostas will generally take more sun than blues. The same hosta will look different when grown in sunny versus shady conditions. In general, the more sun a plant is exposed to, the lighter the colors will be.

Some hostas can tolerate much more sun. Please refer to the Sun Tolerant Hostas Tip for more information.
