Patriot Hosta

Patriot Hosta The Hosta ‘Patriot’, Hosta fortunei, has heart-shaped, glossy medium green leaves with a large white margin, making this variety very striking. The Hosta flowers bloom from July to August, however, Hosta’s are not known only for their flowers. With a plant height of 22” and a spread of 36-48”, Hosta’s provide bright color in shade with wonderful foliage. Hosta ‘Patriot’ needs to be planted in a full shade area in any moist, well-drained area. Hosta ‘Patriot’ was the American Hosta Growers’ Hosta of the Year in 1997, and one can see why. This low care perennial is ideal for shady positions, tubs and patio pots, and one of the most popular for landscape uses. A great choice for any beginner gardener.
