InfoA heavily powdered 'Guacamole'.
So cool on a hot summer day!
Ambrosia is "the food of the gods" and this hosta is certainly good enough to eat. It is simply divine. It is a blue-margined, light yellow-centered sport of my own 'Guacamole' that performs just as well in the garden, making a large clump that enjoys bright light. Like ambrosia it is fragrant and may also have the same mythological healing powers. This hosta is close to perfection.
