Hosta  'Guacamole'
Zoom In Photo:

The dramatic large chartreuse leaves have irregular dark green edges and deep veins. The white to pale lavender flowers are fragrant. Together these characteristics lead 'Guacamole' to be Hosta of the Year for 2002. Leaf colouration intensifies with more light and age. A sport of 'Fragrant Bouquet'.
