tissue culture sport of
'Striptease' was registered by
Jim Anderson of Winterberry Farms in Georgia in 2003. Forming a
medium size hosta about
16 inches high by 30 inches wide, this cultivar has ovate to
elliptic ovate leaves with good substance. Its lavender flowers
bloom in late July.
Hosta Journal, (2008 Vol. 39 No 1), "The
differences between 'Gypsy Rose' and its parent 'Striptease' are, at best,
minor. It would be incredibly easy for even the sharpest eye to mistake one for
the other...these two hostas would have to be grown side by side for someone to
recognize the subtle differences."
