Green with yellow borders

This came up in the Satisfaction thread, about more "green with large yellow borders" and specifically Goodness Gracious and Seducer were mentioned. Well, you cannot mention Seducer without also mentioning Climax.

Here it looks a bit green in the margin, but it has been yellow gold before
Hosta 'Climax'

Then, Afterglow, which came to me in June after First Look Auction in February:

Tokudama Flavocircinalis....new of course, and good substance

Paradise Sunshine, a fragrant one, not as much substance in the young plant, but it has a pretty shape and nice leaf too

I know I have more that have green middles and yellow margins, but today cannot find them. My real high favorites, besides fragrant hosta, are the yellow with green margins. But that's another thread already covered.

Any you have to show, go for it.

Technically Wide Brim is said to have a creamy white border but mine sure looked yellowish to me. Creamy yellow?

Those shown are all really nice plants. Here are a few that hold their yellow margin in my garden.

Gemini Moon 7-25-12 (71)

This one is grown in lots of sun. The colors are very intense. I imagine grown in a little less sun it wouldn't bleach out at all.

Summer Lovin 7-25-12 (20)

The yellow margin of Grand Prize is so bright. In sun it turns white but then grows new leaves that are spring yellow. In the shade my plant keeps the yellow all year. This picture was taken in June but it was just about the same color in October.
