Striptease Hosta Sports: My Favorite Hostas

Striptease is by far my favorite hosta of all the hosta varieties. It’s not as much Striptease itself but the sports and varieties that have come off of Striptease that make it so special. What makes the Striptease sports different is their ability to grow in full sun. Yes full sun. They need a little more water than normal if they’re grown in full sun the coloring is that much more pronounced and the cream turns a bright white. Below you can see how white Gypsy Rose will get if grown in full sun. If you are thinking of growing hosta in full sun you need to look for white leaved hostas. The more white in the leaf, the more sun it can take without burning.

Risky Business Hosta

Another great sport is pictured below. This is ‘Hanky Panky’ and it grows like a weed. The leaves are pretty variable but have an incredible blend of lime green, dark green, cream, and white. This photo shows a little sun burn and the transition between green to white edges.
