Re: Sun Burned Hostas

I have multiples of both of these plants. Get two of each and see how they
do in both locations. Here on the east coast in zone 7 both hostas take sun
until noon or a little later.

 More sun= more water=faster growth.

Wide Brim and Patriot both are great plants. Extras would go over great at
plant swaps.
