Hosta -- Planting

By The Old House Web
Most hostas thrive in full shade, though a few can tolerate more sun, especially those with yellowish foliage. Blue and blue-green hostas should be planted in full shade. Variegated plants can tolerate partial shade.

A well-drained, rich organic soil is ideal for growing plants. Work the soil to a depth of six to eight inches.
