Hosta Guacamole

Of all the hostas that have flowered in recent weeks, this one stands out for being delightfully fragrant, with exceptionally large, lily-like, bright white flower spikes, tinged with lavender, opening over a long period and held high  – 3’/1m above the foliage on strong stems.

The foliage has avocado coloured leaves (who would guess?) with darker margins. Colouring to a stronger gold/yellow in sun, retaining the dark edging, this cultivar is more tolerant of brighter conditions, though I prefer the greener finery.

If hostas as known purely as foliage plants, this one should make you think again….
