Guacamole Hosta is a shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for their foliage.  The large, curling basal leaves are marbled with blue-green, soft green, and yellow streaks and deep veins.  The fragrant bell-like white-lavender flowers raise up in terminals from the rootstalk above the mound in mid-summer attracting butterflies.  Best color in partial sun and moist well-drained soils.  Requires full shade if grown in hot summer areas.
