InfoDeeply veined gracefully arching mound with 3 distinct colors in the leaves.
Center gets lighter, margin gets darker as the season progresses.
Tall vase shaped with unusual coloring. The chartreuse center turns quite gold later in the summer. Very deep ribbing and a ruffled edge make this very large hosta show off. Beautiful shine. Named for the state of Colorado and the beautiful green colors of the lichens you see up high at the divide. Fertile blossoms. A stand out in your garden.
