Hosta of the Day - 'Golden Meadows'

The final hosta in this week's series is hosta 'Golden Meadows'.  'Golden Meadows' has a very unique leaf structure.  The edges of the hosta are very ruffled, almost puckered looking.  The center of 'Golden Meadows' is light green, while the margins have a blue/green coloring.  As 'Golden Meadows' matures there is also a third color, which is a medium green that show up between the center and the margin.  I can't think of another hosta that even looks anything like this one.  I have mine paired with Heuchera 'Green Spice'.  It would also look well paired with a gold colored hosta.
