Answer: I don't think there is much variance from hosta variety to variety as far as adaptability in hot, dry locations. Hostas love cool, moist, shady spots, so growing them in your environment may be a challenge. Amend the soil with lots of composted manure (at least 2-3" deep) and keep the soil moist and mulched during the summer. Hopefully if they have shade from the hot afternoon sun, they will grow well for you. Any of the varieties in the catalog are worth a try.
