'Christmas Pageant' was new to me in spring 2008 but it got off to a rough start and over its first winter, the crown suffered quite a bit of damage - maybe voles, though I've never seen other evidence of voles in my northern garden. But it has recovered. It has dark green leaves with a very wide yellow to creamy white margin. Vigorous grower with thick corrugated leaves. It makes a medium-sized mound and is a sport of 'Christmas Tree'. In 2015 it suffered more slug damage than it usually does. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.
