Hosta 'Striptease'
Common Name: Plantain Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)

Hosta  'Striptease'
Zoom In Photo:

'Striptease' is a uniquely seductive hosta with dark green leaves centred with a bright chartreuse that fades during summer to a light green. This central area is irregularly thinly brushed with a strip of pure white (that sometimes doesn't appear until plants are mature). This is a fabulous hosta that we've loved in our garden for a number of years. Hosta of the Year for 2005. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
