Would these hostas be ok in full sun?

I'm about to shuffle  my patio pots. Would these two be ok in full sun?



In London. Keen but lazy.

    Id give it a try... they’re similar types to mine and they’re just fine.  ... make sure the pots are big enough to hold lots of damp soil and they should be fine ... if the pots are small they can dry out in hours. 
    I water mine every morning ... occasionally in the evenings too if it’s been very hot.

    Lots of hostas can cope with full sun if there is adequate moisture to keep their leaves plumped but the ones with creamy variegation have thinner leaves that can get sunburned and are best in dappled shade.

    My hostas all seem happy in the sunshine and if @Hostafan1 says it’s ok I would definitely go for it. He knows his stuff.

    That’s not blushing @Hostafan1 ... that’s sunburn 🥵

    Thanks all. They're in big pots but they're big plants. I don't think I'd be able to keep them sufficiently wet anyway. I'll leave them in the shade😊

    Plants now shuffled. Hostas are staying where they're happy.. They would added a nice foil for some of the plants on the bright side.
    Never mind the hostas. I'm staying in the shade today too😎
