If 'Sara' is Medium-large, I hope it has attained its full growth but I doubt it. This is its fourth season in my garden and it's far larger than the size for which it is registered.
In regard to the lutescence of this hosta, the light is really critical. My daughter Sara keeps her division of it in a large pot in a dark place and it is much darker green in colour.
