Hosta 'Paul Revere'

This tissue culture sport of H. 'Patriot' was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2003. The slightly cupped leaves form a medium size mound about 16 inches high with a spread of 30 inches. Pale lavender flowers bloom in late July.

An article on "Look Alikes" in The Hosta Journal (2007 Vol. 38 No.1) l isted H. 'Flash of Light', H. 'Loyalist', H. 'Paul Revere' and H. 'Fire and Ice' as cultivars that are difficult to distinguish from each other.

Warren I. Pollock in The 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'..."
