From Walters Gardens, comes another reverse sport of the popular Hosta 'Patriot'.
So far, it seems rather different from H. 'Fire and Ice', but the verdict is still out.
The dark green leaves are sharply contrasted with a brilliant white center variegation on very thick leaves. In mid summer, the 2' wide clumps are topped with spikes of light lavender flowers.
The exciting reverse variegation of H. 'Patriot', leaf margins of dark green with centers of nearly pure white; not prone to melting out, has good substance and is probably a tetraploid. The flowers are lavender on creamy-white stems in mid-summer.
The show-stopping reverse variegation of the famous Hosta 'Patriot'. This plant has much heavier leaves, probably the result of being a tetraploid. The leaf margin is deep green and the leaf center is nearly pure white, and is not prone to melting out. The flowers are lavender on cream-white stems in mid-summer. One of the best white centered hosta to arrive on the gardening scene in over 25 years.
A sport of 'Patriot', the dark green edges are brilliantly highlighted by the white centers. The white centers have shown no signs of melting out. Lavender flowers.
