This grower is sure of this plant identification.
One of the most important mutations of recent years, selected from Gold Standard. Typical fortunei shaped leaf has a wide green margin and a gold centre, separated by a thin white line, which at the time was unique. The plant is special, but we are looking forward to adding more derivatives from it to our range. This variety grows strongly, and makes an excellent pot plant, is great by water and contrasts well with ferns and other Hostas. Will grow about 90cm wide. AHS hosta of the year 2005.
Hosta ‘Striptease’. A large mounding Hosta with distinctive leaves: darker green with a lighter green centre and a white 'lightening strike' between the two.
All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.
Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
