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.
An article on "Look Alikes" in
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
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'..."
