Zone villa grove, illinois 61956 | monkeybutt added on April 22, 2017 | Answered

I have fire and ice, guardian angel and stained glass hosta plants.i would like to plant them on the west side of my house. the problem, if it is one, is, I get direct sun for approximately 4 to 5 hours there every day. can they handle that much sun if I keep them watered. I live in central Illinois, a little town called villa grove. any help would be appreciated.

These three hostas will mostly scorch in that much afternoon sun. There are some hostas that take more sun like guacomole, sun power and orange marmalade. Generally the yellower hostas can take more sun, while blue and dark green hostas need more shade
