Hosta hybrid Avocado - plantain lily


    Hosta hybrid Avocado is a stunning and unique perennial plant that is highly valued by gardeners for its eye-catching, variegated foliage. This plant is a hybrid of Hosta plantaginea and Hosta 'Sum and Substance', resulting in a cultivar with striking green and yellow foliage.

    The leaves of Hosta hybrid Avocado are large, oval-shaped, and have a glossy texture. The foliage is predominantly green with yellow margins, and the coloration is reminiscent of ripe avocados, hence the name. The contrast between the green and yellow colors is striking, and the foliage remains attractive from spring through fall.

    Hosta hybrid Avocado is a medium-sized plant that typically grows to be around 18 inches tall and 30 inches wide. It has a mounded habit and forms a dense clump of foliage, making it an excellent choice for edging a border, grouping in a bed, or as a focal point in a container garden.

    In mid-summer, Hosta hybrid Avocado produces tall scapes that rise above the foliage and bear clusters of lavender flowers. The flowers are a lovely accent to the foliage but are not the main attraction of this plant.

    Hosta hybrid Avocado is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow and care for. It prefers partial shade but can tolerate full sun if the soil is consistently moist. It also thrives in moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate some dryness once established. This plant is also tolerant of a wide range of soil types and pH levels.

    Overall, Hosta hybrid Avocado is a must-have plant for any shade garden. Its unique avocado-colored foliage is sure to be a standout, and its ease of cultivation makes it a great choice for both novice and experienced gardeners alike.
