'Patriot' Hosta Lily
Hosta 'Patriot'

If you're looking for a very dependable variegated Hosta to light up the shady areas of your gardens look no further. We've grown and planted a lot of Hosta in our gardens over the years and 'Patriot' has been one of if not the best all-time performers among the variegated cultivars. It's one of the most exciting hostas to come along, in a long time. It forms attractive compact mounds of pure white leaves with "painted" deep green centers. Or are the leaves dark green with white borders? Or does it matter? What matters is that this is one of the best of the best hosta lilies we've ever grown. The dense mounds of foliage are topped with pretty lavender flowers in summer that you and your hummingbirds will love. This one looks so good throughout the season that we have no problem recommending it for use as accents or in groupings in front home foundation plantings, or in mass plantings as a groundcover.

Patriot Hosta prefers the shade and will practically grow in the dark, so is perfect for planting in those difficult to fill areas in deep shade, even under large shade trees. That being said, it will also do quite well in dappled shade or filtered sun, but does not like the hot, direct afternoon sun. It grows well in any well-drained soil with average fertility. USDA Zones: 3a-9b  Find Your Zone >
