I have a steep slope. Will hostas take root? They will be getting some sun. I like Patriot. Would that work or is there another one better? Dorothy Beckvall xersiz70@yahoo.com

Planting on a steep slope may be an issue for many plants with irrigation the biggest.

Morning sun should be ok for the Hosta, including Patriot, but hot afternoon sun is not a good planting location for Hosta plants.
