I know Hosta's are common but they are one of my favorite plants in my garden. My dogs trample them, pee on them, lay down on them and every year they come back, bigger and more plentiful than the year before.
They definately do well in the shade. I live in the woods not much sun...Brew said:Yours seem to be doing much better than some of my variegated ones!!! I'll have to look at replacing them one of these years if they don't take off. I think they get too much sun however so I don't know if they are in good spots to begin with.
