Hosta, Patriot

Description: The Patriot Hosta cuts a Clean White Path Along the Edge of Every Leaf! What's the point of variegation if you have to get right on top of the plant to see it? Hosta Patriot takes matters into its own hands with the widest, whitest, cleanest edging I have ever seen on a Hosta. The result is a plant that stands out across the garden which is perfect for formal and informal designs. Like most Hostas, 'Patriot' is a splendidly easy plant for the shady garden. It tolerates a wide range of soil types, asking only for good drainage at least half a day of shade. Heat, humidity, and cold do not phase it!
