Hosta Guacamole

Hosta Guacamole

This hosta really is the exact color of guacamole. The leaves are rounded, and they are very shiny, with a chartreuse center and wide darker green margin, that is close enough in color that they blend with the center.

With its upright open mounding habit, this beauty does a little better if it gets some sun in the morning, this will make the colors really intensify. Very distinctive; it is one of the last to go dormant.

This reverse variegated sport of H. ‘Fragrant Bouquet’ was found in tissue culture. It has the same wonderful giant sized near-white or very light lavender, fragrant flowers in late summer.

The vigorously growing clump grows to 3 feet wide by 2 feet tall.
