The lavender flowers bloom from July to August, and it has a plant height of 22” and a spread of 36-48”. ‘Patriot’ provides bright color in shade with its wonderful foliage.
Patriot Hosta is a former winner of “Host of the Year” from the American Hosta Growers.
If you have ever seen it, you will know why-it literally brings light to shade! This is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions and is one of the most popular for landscapes. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
It is at home in well moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
Plant ‘Patriot’ in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. TToo much sun will burn the leaves.
With its outstanding coloration, ‘Patriot’ is one of the most striking and exciting hostas to have in your shade garden!
