An Award-Winning Hosta to Brighten your Shade Garden


The combination of bright-white edges on deep-green leaves makes Patriot Hosta (Hosta ‘Patriot’) a shining standout in shady garden spots. This outstanding hosta earned the 1997 Hosta of the Year Award because of its beautiful coloration as well as its resilience to heat. If your shade garden needs a pop of brightness, Patriot Hosta will command attention.

Tougher than it Looks
Patriot Hosta is a resilient plant that stands up to the heat without fading.

1. Contrasting foliage. Teardrop-shaped leaves don’t have thin, white margins; the edges have bold, wide bands of pure white.

2. Hummingbird appeal. Lavender-purplish flowers form along tall stems that are held high above the foliage in summer.

3. Heat-tolerant. Even in the shade, the heat can overpower some plants. Patriot Hosta has higher heat-tolerance than many hostas.

So Many Garden Uses
Patriot Hosta is right at home in a shady garden. As a single specimen plant, it’s a standout, but in massed plantings it’s a true knockout. If you have a border garden, which is in a transition area from a sunny area to shade, Patriot Hosta prospers just inside the shady zone. Along a woodland garden path, Patriot Hosta makes a striking edging plant. Try featuring Patriot Hosta as a container plant for your shaded patio or deck.

Simple Care Tips
Planting. Place the plant’s crown at the soil level – or slightly above grade – to keep it from rotting.

Sun. Morning sun or filtered sun is plenty for Patriot Hosta. Too much sun will scorch the white edges of the leaves for an unsightly appearance.

Soil. Rich humus or organically amended well-draining soil is best.

Water. Keep new plants watered regularly so the roots don’t dry out. Established plants prosper in evenly moist soil that’s not soggy.

Fertilizer. One light fertilizer application in spring is all your Patriot Hosta needs. Use a slow-release, all-purpose fertilizer and follow label recommendations.

Pruning. You won’t need to spend a lot of time pruning and grooming these plants. Simply remove flower stalks after the flowers fade, and remove dead leaves in fall or winter.
