The ‘Guacamole’ Hosta is a bold perennial plant with big, foot-long leaves that grow into a dense mound of foliage, about 18 inches high and spreading to be 4 feet across. The leaves are a wonderful shade of chartreuse green, with an irregular border of a slightly more blue shade. This great plant will brighten all the shady parts of your garden with a color that never fades to plain old green. In late summer it carries tall stems of fragrant white flowers – a great bonus. As well, this plant grows much better in hot zones than almost any other hosta – the perfect plant for the south-east.

  • Big, bold mound of chartreuse green foliage
  • Large, fragrant, white flowers in summer to early fall
  • Grows well in shady parts of the garden
  • More tolerant of warm winters than other hosta plants
  • Easily grown in almost any garden

Plant the ‘Guacamole’ Hosta in partial shade or full light shade, such as beneath deciduous trees or in the north shadow of a building. It grows in all zones, from 2 to 9, in most soil types, preferring rich, moist, well-drained soil for its best growth. It is virtually maintenance free – just remove the flower stems when the last blooms have faded. It is generally pest free, and usually less bothered by deer than many other hosta varieties.
