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. Wonderfully fragrant lavender flowers bloom in summer. Hummingbirds and bees are attracted to it flowers. Guacamole ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

Guacamole Hosta Plant Care Instructions: Soil should be kept moist during the early part of the season. Once the summer heat sets in, the soil can dry slightly between waterings. In late fall, after frost has turned the foliage brown, it should be cut back to the ground. Roots should be divided every 3-5 years. Early fall or early spring is an excellent time to divide. Spring is also the best time to apply one application of liquid fertilizer.
