I really wanted to buy this hosta this summer but every one I saw here in Michigan looked horrible. Can Diana Remembered take the sun?

May need to ask others what their experience is. Mine gets some morning sun, but not a lot. However, it DOES have Plantaginea heritage; so I bet it can take some. Don Rawson does not list it amongst his sun-tolerant hostas though.

I should comment that this is what I call an unruly mound. Not a nice round shape held up high and the low lying leaves do seem to be affected by slugs. On the positive side, they haven't affected most of the other leaves that are held higher.

2014 picture. Not much growth, but then I've had the plant for 10 years.
