Hosta of the Day - 'Orange Marmalade'

Hosta 'Orange Marmalade' is a sport of hosta 'Paul's Glory' from Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm.  It has dark green edges and emerges with bright gold (almost orangish) in spring.  The center fades to almost bright white by fall depending on sun exposure.  Pair this one with green, gold, or blue hostas.
