- Customer favorite! 'Patriot' is one of the few hostas that can really take the heat of the deep south. It's large leaves edged in white really brighten up the shade garden. In midsummer, tall spikes produce lavender flowers. Remember that deer love hostas, so if you have a herd of deer that visits on a regular basis, it is best not to tempt them with hostas. They make beautiful container plants for a shady patio, porch, etc.or line a wooded path with hostas, ferns, coral bells, etc for a natural woodland look.
- Prepare the planting area well with organic matter. A few hours of morning sun is fine but avoid hot, intense afternoon sun, especially in the south. (This is a general rule for all hostas)
- 2 ft tall x 2 feet wide. Dormant in winter.
