Variable, variegated foliage. Leaf color margin medium to light gold. Center color medium to light green with white streaking with darker green dotting, creating a misted appearance. Pale purple flowers in mid July. Matures a dense mound 6 inches high and 15 inches wide. PLEASE NOTE: This is a very difficult hosta to describe as it can vary from garden to garden, from different light conditions, or individual leaves. Photo show one of the plants being sold. The photo itself is the best description on how this plant looks. In my opinion my Silver Treads have very nice colors and variegation. A beautiful plant! Zones 3-9.
