Hosta "Avocado" review

Hosta 'Avacado'? No! To die for [C. Seaver]. Fast Growth rate. Greenish yellow with a 2" wide, flat dark green margin. Very shiny on top and underneath, moderately folded. A very interesting wide dark green margined sport of our own 'Guacamole'. The plant appears somewhat blacker in color and seems to have more substance. Large clump; light lavender fragrant flowers in June and August. Very nice sport of Hosta 'Guacamole', dark green margin is quite wide and surrounds a narrow gold center. Overall appearance of the plant is a lot darker than its parent and the leaves seem to be somewhat thicker. Vigorous grower that makes a nice clump in no time and will be topped with pale lavender flowers that are fragrant. This is the original sport of 'Guacamole' with a narrow center, not 'Holy Molй'. Take Hosta 'Guacamole' and shrink the center down to a narrow, about 1" streak, and you have 'Holy Molй' or 'Avocado'. Both of these Hostas have a very dark edge that, on its own, is slower growing than 'Guacamole'. Heat tolerance, shiny leaves, and large white, fragrant flowers. This one will sell well.
