Hosta 'Patriot'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Leaves are deep green with clean, white edges
  • Medium-large size with a pleasing habit
  • One of the most popular varieties of Hosta

Spectacular variegated leaves have bright white-streaked margins and dark green centers. The foliage is slightly wavy, of good substance, and sun tolerant. Beautiful lavender flowers are on tall stems just above the plant and attract hummingbirds, as well as songbirds. It is a wonderful plant that is not only low maintenance but also a pure joy to have in the landscape. A sport of 'Francee'. Voted one of the top Hosta varieties in American Hosta Society polls.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained soil with high organic content and slightly acidic to neutral pH. They prefer slightly sandy soil over heavy clays as they need aeration for the roots. Grow in high-filtered or dappled sunlight--they can tolerate morning sun but not hot afternoon sun. Hostas are prone to slugs and deer browsing, though some kinds with thicker foliage may not be damaged as badly. Apply slug bait in early spring before the leaves have unfurled to prevent damage. Divide large clumps, if necessary, in spring when sprouts appear, or late summer. Remove dead foliage from the garden in late fall to early winter.
