Hostas are not difficult to grow but are site specific in that they require shade or at least part shade. They are vigorous growers but simply cannot not handle the direct hot sun. Sun positions will burn the leaves in a very short time. They also require a good, rich, moist soil that is well draining during the winter. They really are an ideal plant for woodland gardens and shady corners.
