‘Minuteman’ Hosta sports deep green leaves edged in pure white. Made for the shade, ‘Minuteman’s’ bold contrasting foliage makes it a standout - it almost twinkles in the dappled light of a woodland garden or shady spot. Great in containers too. Pale lavender flowers appear in July, attracting hummingbirds. (Hosta)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

10-18" tall x 24-36" wide. A moderate sized Hosta, ‘Minuteman’ will delight you with its deep, almost blue leaves with wide, bright white margins. The spade-like foliage is elegant in containers and in a shady spot where it can shine against the greens of other perennials. Blooming in July, hummingbirds love its mauve-violet flowers. Plant in well-drained, compost enriched soil for best results and water regularly. Rabbit resistant, ‘Minuteman’ is even somewhat slug resistant. Hosta will die back each fall, then reappear in spring, it may be divided in spring or fall. Hostas also make excellent companions for Coral Bells, Columbine and Bleeding Heart.
