Hosta 'Avocado'

(Diesen 1998)

Clump Size: (L) 48" x 24"

Leaf Size: 11" x 9" -- Vein Pairs: 11 - 12

Description: Leaves are oval to heart-shaped with a chartreuse turning yellow center and a wide, medium green margin. The leaves are slightly shiny and it makes a beautiful clump.

Blooms: Lavender tinted, near white, fragrant flowers bloom in late July/early August.

Comments: This great plant is a wide margined sport of Hosta 'Guacamole'. It colors best in a little bright light but may bleach in too much sun though it is heat tolerant and looks great all season long. The leaves are a little shiny which makes it differ slightly from Hosta 'Holy Mole' though they are very close to being the same plant.

Light: Part sun to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.

Related Plants: Fragrant Bouquet, Guacamole, Holy Mole

Zones: 2 - 9

Availability Ships April through November
Plant Size 3rd year field grown plant, freshly dug and shipped bare root
Price (ea): $18.00

Customer Reviews

Author: Donald Backer
This is a very nice hosta, gets rather large, and tolerates heat like a champ. Only 'Cathedral Windows' has nicer variegation of this type. Hallson Gardens has some of the best examples of this and other fragrant-flowered hostas in their inventory. When I shop for hostas, I usually look at Hallson Gardens inventory first to see if they have it available.

Now shipping perennials and lily bulbs for fall planting:

Thank you for a great year so far. We are now shipping orders for fall planting and will continue shipping into November. Lily bulbs have recently been added and we have a great selection of OT lilies this fall, plus some great sale items, so be sure to check those out. Hellebores are now available for immediate shipping and we have several hellebores potted in the nursery at this time also.

Your order can be shipped almost immediately or you can specify your preferred shipping time at checkout. Please note that we are not taking spring orders yet.

The nursery is still open to the public 7 days a week from 9am to dark. All potted plants remaining in the main sales area are now buy 1 get 1 free. We will close in late October, depending on the fall weather, so if you are in the area we would love to show you around and help you pick out some plants. We are located on the west side of US Highway 127, 17 miles south of Jackson, Michigan, and 1/2 mile north of US-12.

Feel free to email us or call us toll free at 866-568-1474 with any questions and thank you very much for your continued support!

Sincerely yours, Chris Wilson and Brian Hall, Hallson Gardens
