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

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.

Welcome to summer - it's hosta season!

We would like to thank you for all of your spring orders. It was another successful spring shipping season and we will now continue to ship hostas, daylilies, and bearded Iris through the summer. The rest of the bare root perennials need to stay in the ground until fall as they are too actively growing to go cross country at the moment, so any new orders placed for perennials will now ship in the fall.

Hostas ship all summer and are always dug fresh. Each order is soaked for a period of time to allow the roots to absorb enough water to plump up the foliage, then the roots are wrapped in wet paper towels and covered with a bag. Your plants are sent in tall boxes to allow for all of the foliage. New orders for immediate shipping typically turned around in about 5 days, though sometimes sooner.

The nursery is NOW OPEN to the public 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm, including all holidays. We will close in 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
