Keeps its color and neat habit right up until frost!
With a name befitting its origins in Virginia, this award-winning sport of the renowned Hosta Francee is elegant, formal, and breathtakingly beautiful!
The heart-shaped leaves, 5 by 7 inches, have a deep, rich green center and broad (1-inch), jagged white margins. They arise in great profusion from the center of these mounded plants, creating many layers of fresh foliage. Bright purple shoots in spring and showy pale lilac flowers in early summer further enhance the beauty!
Creating an elegant, formal, very neat look, the foliage remains crisp and variegated, even in the heat and humidity of southern summers! The plant quickly forms a neat, pest-resistant clump 12 inches tall and 30 inches wide.
A carefree specimen for the shade garden, Patriot offers crisp, fresh bold color right up until frost! One quart pots. Zones 3-9.
