Guacamole (Yum!) Hosta has corrugated leaves that are a medium green with a slightly darker, thin margin.  Though the name sounds tasty, I doubt that this Guacamole tastes very good.  In midsummer they sprout white to light lavender trumpet-shaped flowers on tall sturdy stems high above the plant.  Hostas are extremely popular, hardy herbaceous perennials grown primarily for their beautiful foliage. They are easy to grow, shade-tolerant plants. The plants are low maintenance.  Hostas originally came from Japan, China, and Korea.  They were first introduced to Europe in the late 1700s and then came to the United States in the middle 1800s.
