Plant Features

Guacamole Hosta Plants are rapid growers that produces heavily ribbed, showy, rounded green leaves with a gold centers. The foliage colors are more intense with more sun light.

Unfortunately my whole family got sick the week the plants arrived so I could not plant them right away. And then another onslaught of delays continued (august was not a great month).
