I originally loved the look of this hosta and the nice contrast it gave to the rest of the shade garden, but I've had time to watch this hosta in my garden. All of them are getting brown on the edges of the leaves and looking like they are scorched. They all receive almost complete shade except for a few minutes of morning sun and then it is filtered through the trees. I am not happy about the look of these plants. I have seven of them planted in different parts of the shade garden and every one of them is looking bad.
