Description

Details

Dark green with creamy white margin. Wavy, rippled, good substance, smooth margin. Found as a sport of H. 'Francee', along with its "cousin" H. 'Patriot.' As with all white-margined hostas it is difficult to grow without the white burning out. H. 'Minuteman' is an example of the edge being polyploid and the center diploid. Possibly considered a tetraploid. (Photos courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.)

This is a nice, full, hosta with strong green and wider very white margin. It is a good moderately sized plant. Adds to the American theme with Revolution and Loyalist. (Posted on September 10, 2015)
