An aptly named rich green, large-leaved variety with chartreuse centers (the color of freshly sliced avocado) edged with a wide, dark green margin. The large, fragrant white flowers of 'Guacamole' add spice late in the season. Expect a plant with big impact. We like it combined with blue-leaved Hostas or native Ferns. This genus of shade lovers has 70 species, all of them from China and Japan, and hybridizers have produced hundreds of exciting crosses. Hostas have ms, all of them from China and Japan, and hybridizers have produced hundreds of exciting crosses. Hostas have many handsome leaf colorations and lavender or white Lily-like flowers on graceful stalks. Plants prefer a moist location, but we've had a mass planting thrive for more than 30 years under a row of Sugar Maples. (In the South and West, evenly moist soil is required.) Because Hostas are grown primarily for their foliage, we give the height of the leaves, not the flowers.
