Named hosta of the year 2005, Hosta Striptease is one of the most distinct hostas that you will come across. This variety of hosta bears oval-shaped variegated leaves with a chartreuse center that is separated from its dark green edge by a noticeable thin white strip. As the perennial matures, the chartreuse center gradually changes its color to yellow and then ivory.
Striptease hostas grow up to a height of 18 to 20 inches and usually have a spread of 35 to 47 inches. It is an easy-to-care hosta that blooms pale lavender colored flowers. The funnel-shaped flowers appear on 28-30 inch scapes. The flowers tower and sway above the clump. Hosta Striptease grows well in partial to full shade and has a preference for evenly moist, well-drained soil types. You could use it for a variety of purposes, ranging from shaded border to woodland gardens.
