Hosta 'Patriot'

(Machen 1991)

Clump Size: (ML) 34" x 20"

Leaf Size: 8" x 6" -- Vein Pairs: 12 - 14

Description: Leaves are ovate, medium green with a creamy yellow turning to white margin. They develop some corrugation when mature but are mostly known for their wide, bright margins.

Blooms: Pale lavender flowers bloom in midsummer.

Comments: This wide margined sport of Hosta 'Francee' is one of the classics in white margined hostas. The only drawback is that the white edges are not as heat and sun tolerant as you would hope, so keep it well watered and fertilize occasionally for the best performance. Hosta 'Patriot' differs from Hosta 'Minuteman' in that the latter has a deeper green center, more rounded and cupped form, and has a little less cream to the margin. Hosta 'Patriot' is always more of a spear shaped leaf.

Light: Light sun to full shade. -- Soil: Rich, consistently moist soil.

Related Plants: Francee, Loyalist, Minuteman

Zones: 2 - 8
