Five More Guacamole Hostas - Backyard Summer 2020
Yesterday, I posted a photo of a multi-trunk (3-trunk) River Birch tree that continues to grow up in our backyard and mentioned in that post that you could peek at a few of the Guacamole Hostas lined up alongside the bed the River Birch clump is located. Today, are a couple of photos showing the rest of these large (and one small) Guacamole Hosta.
We had six of them purchased for us at Hinsdale Nursery earlier this Summer - five really large ones and one smaller one. I toyed with the idea of planting a few of them out front under the large Maple tree, but after seeing them there, I decided to plant them in the backyard. And back in July, when I planted the contorted Harry Lauder Walkingstick tree, I took one of the larger ones and planted it in the bed next to the tree.
As for the other five, this post shows their current state and location.
At the top of the post, you can see three more - two large ones and the one small one - planted in a small cluster on the northside of our lawn in the mulch. bed underneath the largest Catalpa tree. These are just to the West of the picnic table we have out there.
So, that accounts for four of them. One by the Walking Stick Contorted tree. Three more here.
Below are the other two. These are 'large' ones, too. They're planted just to the West of the London Plane Tree that I planted this year. They're the first 'keeper' plants in this newly created bed in the far back of our lot.
For another angle of #1 and these two (#5, #6), check out the photo on this post where you can see them in the background.
They're lovely colored - and as their name indicates - the color of guacamole and are providing a nice foundation for some of these newly created beds. Hoping that they'll all get established and grow this year and come back in 2021 healthy and leafy.
