Patriot’ has medium, heart-shaped, glossy deep green leaves with white variegation on the edge, making this variety very striking. It grows very quickly and easily in partial shade and has good sun tolerance. This is a good plant for ground cover, edging, accent plantings, and containers. It is very showy! A great choice for the best white-margined Hosta ever developed! Like most Hostas, ‘Patirot’ is a splendidly easy plant for the shady garden. Plant may be divided every few years or left undisturbed indefinitely. Hosta’s perform well in woodland settings where filtered light is abundant. American Hosta Grower’s Hosta Of The Year 1997!
