HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2005
Fantastic coloration! Hosta 'Striptease' features wide, dark green margins surround a narrower gold center. Between the two colors a very thin white line runs. A unique and beautiful mutation of 'Gold Standard'. Multi award winner. A strong, fast grower. One of our very favorites! (Thompson 1991)
