Do all the Hostas need shade of some sort? &do they like like Moisture at their roots?

Some hostas are pretty tough and can stand being dry. The past 2 summers we've had a period of drought and I didn't water them at all. I don't think they could go all summer being dry though. Certain hostas can stand a lot of sun too, but most of them need at least afternoon shade. There are some that have to have some morning sun to do well. I was once told that every hosta has to have at least a little sun or dappled light to do well. You just have to research ones you're interested in to see what each specific one likes.

I'll also mention here that there is a good website all about hostas, the Hosta Library. They have pics of just about every hosta there is and also give info. Go to
