Plant Type: Hostas

Sport of ‘Orange Marmalade’ with wider margins and thicker foliage. Leaves emerge blue-green with a nice gold center. As the season progresses the leaves turn more green and the leaf center lightens.

As the leaf center lightens to creamy white there are streaks of orange-gold that form in between the leaf center and green margin. Colors are more dramatic in a bright location. The leaf center will turn pure white with light green streaks in grown in a lot of sun. Pale lavender flowers in summer.
