Generally, thick-leaved hostas and those with fragrant flowers tolerate sunny conditions better than others. In areas where summers are very hot and dry, hostas should be planted in some shade, because the sun is just too intense. In these environments, hostas may go heat dormant during the hottest part of the year.

Sun tolerant Blues - Blue Angel, Elegans, Halcyon, Krossa Regal; Variegated - Francee, Inniswood, Minuteman, Patriot, Regal Splendor, So Sweet, Albomarginata; Green - lancifolia, 'Royal Standard'; Yellow - August Moon, Sum and Substance, Sun Power.
