Hosta ‘Patriot’ is on of the best performing variegated hostas around. Seven inch long medium green and slightly rippled leaves with a creamy yellow to white margin are matched well with the awesome lavender flowers, that emerge in late summer. Growing 15-20″ tall and 24″ wide this hosta is excellent for use in mass plantings or even as a specimen focal plant. Hardy in zones 3-9 (USDA)
Hostas generally prefer moist well drained soils. Part sun to full shade. Due to its variegated nature ‘Patriot’ will handle more sun than the green and blue leaved hosta varieties.
Hostas are easily divided in the spring or early fall. I prefer to divide hostas in the spring be fore the leaves fully emerge. Slugs and snails are common pests and are best managed by hand or by some common slug/snail baits.
