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. (Note that the picture shows it with wet leaves.)

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

Customer Reviews

    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.
