'Mountain Sunrise' is a gold-leafed TC sport of 'Choko Nishiki', itself a montana sport found in Japan. Zilis lists the size as 45 x 22". The leaves of the plant turn green later in the summer if they are not exposed to some direct sunlight. It is late to emerge from the ground. It is considered to be a better grower than other gold montana sports.
