    Donna, you are far enough north that you could probably get away with hostas in full sun, although I have to say that I don't think they ever look right in that situation. Avoid varieties with thin foliage, extensive white coloration or that have blue leaves, as all of these are less tolerant of sun. And, having some familiarity with deer in your area, I would say not to even consider hostas unless you have a deer fence.
