Hosta "Patriot" review
The Hosta Patriot is a sport of Hosta Francee and was named Hosta of the year in 1997. Patriot has the same beautiful dark green centers as its parent Hosta Francee but with a much wider crisp white margins. Plants are very showy and can really make an impact in the garden. Hosta growers quickly fell in love with this stunning variety and the demand for Patriot continues to increase each season. Plants are considered to be sun tolerant but hold their great leaf color much better if provide with some afternoon shade.
