I love the lime or light green center and dark blue-green margin. Even in mostly shade it has grown well albeit slowly. Certainly worth the wait. Put this one on your want list.

It might be my favorite!
This lovely hosta is one of my top 2 or 3, possibly #1. The colors are fantastic, and depending on sun exposure, variable. The flowers are like no other hostas I grow. Normally, I cut off the pallid lavender droopy flowers - I've never liked hosta flowers. But these! Large, incredibly fragrant, beautiful white. I just wish mine grew faster!
