This beautifully alluring Hosta Patriot variety boasts green leaves with eccentric, streaky white margins, instantly setting itself apart from any other plant in your landscape!
‘Patriot’ is one of the few hostas that is truly tolerant to the heat. It’s a tough plant with relatively large dark green leaves that emerge with pure white edges that seem to almost shine in the shade. Hosta patriot’s flowers are lavender and appear on tall spikes in midsummer.
The Patriot Hosta’s foliage remains crisp and variegated, even in the heat and humidity of southern summers! Perfect for shade gardens and planting sites with little direct sunlight.
It was voted ‘hosta of the year’ by the American Hosta Growers in 1997 and continues to be one of our favorite plants.
Grows best in full shade to partial shade. Can handle minor morning sun though. Great as a small shrub in any landscape as it only grows between 1-3 feet tall and wide.
Grow this shrub across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-9. Grows best in moist, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. Plant in early spring so it has the whole growing season to establish a strong root system. Requires a regular watering schedule.
