2002 American Hosta Grower’s ‘Hosta of the Year,’ Guacamole has golden leaves with wide green margins and large fragrant flowers. Vigorous, with good sun tolerance. Deadheading can improve appearance. Pale lavender bloom appears between July and August.
Hostas are one of the great garden foliage plants. They produce bold textures in the landscape, and will take try shade. Their large leaves are wonderful contrasted with Ferns, Dicentras, and other fine-textured shade plants. Some form magnificent specimens. All mass well and are rugged and long-lived!
