'Guacamole' Hosta (Plantain Lily)
Foliage is Deep Green with Variegated Yellow
Soft avocado green and yellow marbled foliage with streaks of slightly darker blue-green. Large flower stalks with white lavender blooms release a soft, sweet fragrance. It requires full shade in hot summer areas. It provides a great contrast in both color and texture in the shade garden. You may want to add Juncus grass to give your garden texture.
An herbaceous perennial.
Fragrant white flowers appear in late summer. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta goes completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring.
Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.
