Hostas are one of the best foliage plants for light to medium shade and are deservedly popular. This variety, Hosta 'Patriot' has beautiful green and white leaves. It is provided as a 'bare root', meaning it does not come in a pot or container but with bare roots, ready to plant yourself, ideally in the dormant season. Simply dig a hole, place the hosta root in it, cover with soil, firm over and water. You can buy one, two or three plants with this order.
