'Rainforest Sunrise' has heavily cupped leaves. It's a sport from 'Maui Buttercups'. Love this one except when the cupped leaves fill up with debris from the trees above. Please feel free to post your own pictures of 'Rainforest Sunrise'.

When it emerges in May, the margin is hardly visible.

Late September - it holds up quite well during the season.

I Really like this little plant, It is very slow to increase for me. I have two in different locations and both are slow. Another slow to increase hosta is Popcorn.

I agree about Popcorn being slow. I've had mine for several years and it's still only one eye and between mini and small. I think it's considered a medium, but not in my garden!

My 'Rainforest Sunrise' popped a solid green sport this year and it's right in the middle of the plant. I will be digging it this week to divide it out.
