I received 1 plant per container they are beautiful and worth it!
Hi Skye, the 'Patriot can be planted anytime the ground is not frozen. This perennial is dormant during the winter months and autumn is a terrific time to plant.
Yes, you should cut flower spikes off at their base when blooming is over.
I’ve planted them in both full sun and partial, and they seem to do well in both settings. I’m in plant zone 7A and they get water from either rain or sprinklers. Also, after about 3 seasons they fill out to being much fuller. I’ve some hostas that are 20 years old so next year instead of purchasing more for other areas, I’ll be dividing them just as shoots begin to show in the Spring and replanting.
Since the mature width is up to 24 inches, you would want to plant them at least this far apart.
Hi Ted, yes, sometimes deer (and rabbits, too) will eat the Hosta. It just depends on their browsing preference in your particular neighborhood.
Hello, the 'Patriot will ship as a potted plant with its soil and its pot too.
Hello, Max, the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone map can show where the actual Zones are located. The Map can be found at: http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/
This will be best in growing zones 4 to 8.
Hello, thank you for your question. Hosta are extremely susceptible to excessive rainfall. Stunted slow growth with yellowing leaves is a symptom of overwatering, as the wet conditions cause nitrogen to leach out of the soil, starving the plant of its nutrients. If the new growth is dying at the same rate of the old leaves, this is a sure sign of overwatering. To combat the effects of too much moisture, try fertilizing with a slow release fertilizer. Regarding frost: Frost damage is usually seen on the leaf edges first; before the centers are affected. In this case, the leaves can just simply be cut off and new foliage will emerge.
