Perennials

Hosta 'Guacamole'

Plantain Lily

This hosta boasts awesome flower power! Guacamole has incredible fragrant blossoms of snow white in mid-summer which contrast beautifully with its light green foliage that has a darker green margin. This variety of hosta is very sun tolerant and its leaf centers become brighter gold in the summer while the margins remain dark green. The trumpet-like blooms appear on scapes 36 inches high above the foliage which makes 'Guacamole' a magnet for hummingbirds and a must-have for the shade or semi-shade garden!

Additional:
