'Patriot' is a hosta cultivar that features a 12-20" tall mound of large, variegated, oval, basal leaves (to 7" long) which have deep green centers and wide irregular white margins. A sport of the long popular H. 'Francee'. Foliage mound will typically spread to 24-30" wide. Racemes of bell-shaped, lavender flowers appear in summer on scapes rising well above the foliage mound to 34" tall. J. Machen 1992.
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions. Does best in rich, moist, organic soils in light, sun-dappled shade.
Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn (perhaps easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl).
