Hosta 'Patriot'

Hosta 'Patriot' (Hosta)

This is the one I chose to underplant my Alliums. hopefully next year it will be a little more 'visible' amongst the foliage...hopefully it will hide the allium leaves altogether! I have three of them in amongst the bulbs.

Position: partial or full shade
Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
Rate of growth: fast-growing
Flowering period: July and August
Flower colour: lavender-blue
Hardiness: fully hardy

Puckered, olive-green leaves with irregular, white margins and spikes of funnel-shaped, lavender-blue flowers in July and August. This vigorous, variegated hosta is perfect for illuminating shady areas of the garden. One of our recommended plants, it makes an eye-catching groundcover plant for a fertile, moist, well-drained border.
