Hosta "Striptease" review

Striptease is often sought out by Hosta collectors for its very unique color patterns. Plants have ovate, slightly wavy leaves with wide, dark green margins and a slender ivory to gold center. Irregular white streaked appear between the green and gold areas giving Striptease a very unique look. The width and amount of striping will differ from leaf to leaf, and often will not appear in plants less than two years old. Plant in an area that receives some morning sun to help bring out the fantastic colors.
