Product Description

Deliciously Colorful Foliage for Low-Maintenance Appeal

Why Guacamole Hosta Plants?

Hostas are a mainstay for shade gardens, and 'Guacamole' is no exception.  Appropriately named for its guacamole-colored leaves, this Guacamole Hosta boasts wide, oval-shaped leaves with distinctive veining and darker bluish-green margins. Plus, it blooms with flushes of white, funnel-shaped and fragrant flowers in mid-summer.  

Our Guacamole Hosta is well suited for planting in groups, or as a border planting behind other plants as an appealing backdrop. This variety forms a rounded to spreading mound of foliage, growing to 18" tall and spreading over time to as much as 50" wide.

Why is Better

Guacamole is beloved by gardeners for its eye-catching, colorful foliage and low-maintenance attributes. Its spreading habit is effortless and easy, without a lot of upkeep on your end. Just plant it and watch its ornamental appeal and showy flowers come to life.

We've done the hard work, and now you'll reap the rewards with an easy, elegant groundcover that's bound to thrive. Don't wait - get your Guacamole Hosta Plant today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Ensure you plant your Hosta in the shade (partial sun also works) and choose a space with well-drained soil.

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your plant's root ball, place your plant and backfill the surrounding soil.

For container planting, select a pot that's about twice the width of your plant's root ball, place your Hosta, and backfill with organic soil mix.

2. Watering: Water your Hosta after planting. Natural rainfall will take care of the rest.

3. Fertilizing: Your Hosta should thrive without fertilizer, but if you want to accelerate growth, use a well-balanced blend for shaded areas.
