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.

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.
