<<   I would like information on hosta which grow best in a lot of sun. Is it
 the variegated ones, ie.. albo marginata, or green honeybells? The info is
 for a friend of mine who has an area he wants to plant with hosta. The bed
 gets full sun until approximately noon each day. Any help would be
 appreciated. Thanks, Jean >>

Hi Jean.  I have the following hostas growing in a spot that gets that much 
or even a little more sun.  This is the first year that I have had them in 
this location and I plan on more eventually:

	1. Aspen Gold			No Burning at all
	2. August Moon			No Burning at all - 3 plants
	3. Royal Standard		Beginning to burn slightly in center 
of leaves on 1 of 							3 
	4. Sum & Substance	No Burning
	5. Wide Brim			Beginning to show a much lighter 
color on the edges 							of 
the leaves than earliewhich is more cream colored.
	6. Patriot.				Burning - not greatly but 
significant for this time of 							
	7. Plantaginea			None as yet but plant just recently 
moved there.
	8. Emerald Tiara		Badly burned - will definitely move 
plant next year.

Hope this helps your friend Jean.
