Summer Care for Hostas
For sunnier spots, hostas like Honeybells and Sum and Substance from the Hosta plantaginea group are perfect.
Water deeply and more often. Hosta roots should receive at least 1" of moisture per week for healthy growth.
Employing the use of a good soaker hose works well. I simply move this one around the hosta farm as I notice dry areas.
Hostas can look great all through the summer if you give them plenty of water, some leaf cleanup and some relief from the heat of the day and that hot sun.
