"산이 초록색이에요."

Translation:The mountain is green.

草綠色 is the 漢字 rendition of 초록색 being “grass.” So the term literally means “grass green.”

The adjective 파르다 describes a broader spectrum of colors ranging from sky blue to leaf green (examples: 푸른 하늘/blue sky and 푸른 숲/green forest). This is the same for 파랗다 (examples: 밭은 아직 파랗다 the field is still green and 가을의 하늘은 아주 파랗다 the autumn sky is very blue).
