Product Information

Illuminate those shady garden spaces in style! A deeply attractive Hosta with variegated foliage and spires of flowers at the height of summer, perfect for all manner of scenarios.

Producing some of the best leaves you’ll see on a perennial, as a rich shade of olive green is variegated with thick, yet irregular, creamy white edges, holding firm from spring to autumn.

During the warmest months of summer, around July and August, stems rise from the plant and display big funnel blooms with lavender blue petals.

‘Patriot’ is vigorous and very easy to grow, you are sure to have room for it! Thriving whether used as ground cover in a border, or as a statement plant in a container for a patio, balcony, or terrace. What’s more, the flowers are summertime treats for pollinators, as they are rich in nectar, perfect for bees.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

If you find that your Hosta is suffering from scorched leaves, move it to a more sheltered position with extra shade.

Care Information

  • Before planting, incorporate plenty of organic matter into the soil. A Hosta will prefer a rich, moisture retentive soil.
  • Knock the plant out from its container. Look at the roots – if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball. Aim to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Keep plants well-watered and mulched with well-rotted organic matter.
  • Hostas can be grown in any container in a good, multi-purpose compost. Ensure that they are kept well-watered. Pot-grown hostas should be fed monthly with a general-purpose liquid feed.
  • Protect from slugs and snails.
