In general, hostas are shade loving plants. However, there are a few that will grow in full sunshine. The American Hosta Society considers the following Hostas sun tolerant: August Moon, Fragrant Bouquet, Francee, Gold Standard, Honeybells, Minute Man, So Sweet, Sum and Substance Sun Power, September Sun, Patriot,and Royal Standard. I've found that hostas with yellow leaves or fragrant flowers can stand more sun than Hostas with green, blue or white leaves. Unless you have a sun tolerant hosta as listed above, I'd plant them in shady spots in the garden.
