Special Attributes

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. The dense mounds of foliage are topped with pretty lavender flowers in summer that you and the hummingbirds will love. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense mound 18 to 24 inches tall and up to 3 feet wide with outstanding color and texture, Patriot Hosta is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, massed as a groundcover (deciduous) or as a border along walkways and paths to light up fully to partially shaded gardens and landscape borders. Patriot has been so reliable and such a strong performer for us that we have no problem at all recommended it for front home foundation plantings. It is perfect under large shade trees, decks, covered porches and any other shady location. Don't think you have any shade? Look on the east side of your home. 

Patriot Hosta can also be grown solitary or mixed with other shade loving perennials in container gardens and is a great choice for mixed hosta, hummingbird, and white color gardens. 

Spacing:  24-30" for mass plantings, 48" for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Patriot Hosta adapts well to many soil types but prefers a moist, well drained soil of average fertility. It prefers the shade, and will practically grow in the dark, so is perfect for planting under tall decks and large shade trees where not much sun shines. That said, it will tolerate morning sun well or all-day filtered sun or dappled shade. Hot afternoon sun can scald the leaves, especially in warmer climates.
