Partial to foliage plants with sharply contrasting colors, ones that are more than mere support players? Consider Patriot, a tetraploid hosta with bright green leaves offset by wide white edges. A medium size plant, Patriot holds its form and delivers good looking foliage even in late summer when other hostas sometimes appear a little tired. Recommended for containers, as a brilliant ruffle around the base of a tree or planted en masse. Exceptional winter hardiness. American Hosta Grower's Association Hosta of the Year in '97.
