Bright-white edges on deep-green leaves set the Patriot Hosta apart, making it a standout star in shady garden areas. In fact, the Patriot earned the 1997 Hosta of the Year Award because of its beautiful coloration and its resilience, thriving in both heat and shade. The Patriot’s teardrop-shaped leaves and lavender-purplish flowers form along tall stems that bring graceful pollinators to your garden. From its heat tolerance and its ability to thrive in shade to its good looks and eco-friendly benefits, the Patriot Hosta does it all.
Ensure you plant your Hosta in the shade (partial sun also works) and choose a space with well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your plant’s root ball, place your plant and backfill the surrounding soil.
For container planting, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your plant’s root ball, place your Hosta, and backfill with organic soil mix.
Water your Hosta after planting. Natural rainfall will take care of the rest.
