Beautiful varigated hosta of small to medium size (about 14" tall and 39" wide). It has heartshaped leaves of mid to dark green surrounded by a variable wide margin of gold. Colors intensify during the summer and in bright light. This hosta is a sport of 'Gold Edger'. Lavendar flowers in mid summer.
