(Plantain Lily ) Hosta 'Minuteman' has bold, creamy-white margins on thick dark green leaves that make this Hosta a real knock-out. The ovate leaves are slightly cupped and rounded at the base. Pale lavender striped flowers are an added bonus. Also demonstrates good sun tolerance. 'Minuteman' is a selection from Hosta 'Francee' and an improvement over the very popular Hosta 'Patriot'.

Another Favorite Review by Karen | Zone: 5b
Another one of my fav's. Very nice clump and the slugs don't bother it. The white borders are brilliant and really stand out. (Posted on 10/21/2012)
Foliage Interest Review by Donna C | Zone: 6a
I've had two Minuteman" hostas growing in a sunny location (Zone 5) for two years and have been very pleased with their performance there. They add continuous foliage interest at the front of a perennial border from spring through mid-October." (Posted on 1/17/2010)
