Enhance Your Shade Garden with Deliciously Colorful Foliage
Hostas are a must in any shade garden, and 'Guacamole' is no exception. Perfectly named for its guacamole colored foliage, Guacamole Hosta flaunts wide, oval-shaped leaves with distinctive veining and darker bluish-green edges. Plus, it blooms in flushes of almost white, funnel-shaped, fragrant flowers in mid-summer for added beauty.
Planted in groups or as a border behind other plants, Guacamole creates an eye-catching mass planting or backdrop. This Hosta forms a rounded, spreading habit that grows to 18" tall and up to 50" wide, giving you the low-growing groundcover you want. Even more? It attracts hummingbirds for a pollinator friendly garden!
Chosen for its bright green foliage and low-growing, low-maintenance attributes, Guacamole is effortless and easy to care for without a lot of work from you. Plant it up and watch its ornamental appeal and showy flowers come to life in no time.
Enjoy all the benefits our Guacamole Hosta has to offer- easy elegance, reliability and abundant, shade tolerant foliage, perfectly packaged into one groundcover option. Don't wait - get your Guacamole Hosta plant today!
Planting & Care
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.
Watering: Water your Hosta after planting. Natural rainfall will take care of the rest.
Fertilizing: Your Hosta should thrive without fertilizer, but if you want to accelerate growth, use a well-balanced blend for shaded areas.
