Hostas for Sun, Fragrance & Slug Resistance

The following lists of plants are just a sampling and must be updated constantly. Plants grown in a lot of sun should be watered regularly. Although Hostas maybe listed as being drought tolerant, they do not do well in this condition. During times of extreme dryness whether in sun or shade, a consistently adequate level of moisture will always reward you with leafy Hostas.  You should avoid getting water on their foliage. This is very important when growing them in the sun.
