Plant Type: Hostas

A small to medium sized hosta. A sport of ‘Bright Lights’ with wider margins and a stronger growth rate. In spring, the leaves are chartreuse with wide, blue margins. In summer, the leaf center brightens to gold and the margins deepen to blue-green. When mature, the thick foliage exhibits some puckering. Near-white flowers are produced on 16 inch scapes in early to midsummer.
