    Which do you think is correct? I can tell you at least one isn't.

    I guess sentence 2 is wrong, but it seems to make some sense to me.

    I agree with you. Sentence 2 is definitely wrong. The third is correct. The first is correct with no comma but that's more words than you need.

    You can say "I like green-colored <things>," but tazzler is right about original sentence 2.
