hosta in a bog garden

Does anyone on the list have experience with Hosta in a bog garden? I
just put in a water feature (2 ponds, waterfall, a stream and a bog) and
put a Fragrant Bouquet in the bog. Hosta are not the reason I put in the
bog, but I want to experiment. I am sure they will grow, but will they
survive a zone 5-6 winter? The books are listing hosta, but that may be
for stremside and not bog. I recall somebody talking about this topic a
couple of years ago. If my memory is correct, this person was growing
hosta with white more successfully than in the ground.

I would appreciate any input on plant selection for a bog. I have my
ideas ---I like taro (colacasia or elephant ear--one plant many names)
and goats beard. Taro needs to be dug up in the fall, so it may be
better in the pond itself.

thanks in advance,
