Whites of Their Edges
Hosta Minuteman, Hosta 'Minuteman', has bold creamy white margins on thick dark green leaves, which makes this Hosta a real knockout!
The dark green center, with erect leaves, makes this a very eye catching and handsome mound.
Pale lavender striped flowers are an added bonus, and this hosta demonstrates good sun tolerance.
'Minuteman' is a selection from Hosta 'Francee' and an improvement over the very popular Hosta 'Patriot'; however, the white margin does not go as deep into the leaf.
This is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions and is one of the most popular for landscapes.
It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
It grows well in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
Plant 'Minuteman' in an area that receives the right amount of light.
The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. Too much sun will burn the leaves, although 'Minuteman' has some sun tolerance.
This 'Minuteman' Hosta is an outstanding addition to any garden!
