tissue culture sport of H. 'Patriot' was registered by
Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2003. The
cupped leaves form a medium size mound about 16 inches high with a spread of
30 inches. Pale lavender flowers bloom in late July.
Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2008 Vol. 39 No. 2) states that, "H. 'Paul Revere'...also medio-variegated, is like 'Loyalist', or perhaps even
identical to it. Also found in tissue-culturing 'Patriot', 'Paul Revere' has
leaves with a dark green margin and wide white center. I'm now seeing all-green
leaves on a few old 'Paul Revere' clumps. Do hostas with these green tetraploid
leaves have a name?
Mark Zilis calls them H. 'Midnight Ride'..."
An article by
Warren I. Pollack in
Hosta Journal (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled
Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for
Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas
which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have
indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same
plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary
in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the
casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the
plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
