Hosta 'Juha'
 

This sport of H. 'Striptease' originated with Marco Fransen in the Netherlands and is a medium size, non-registered cultivar. The center of the leaf changes from light green to gold as the season progresses. It bears pale lavender flowers from July into August.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Hanky Panky' and H. 'Outer Limits'.

According to a Google search, "Juha" was a 1999 movie made in Finland.


From The Hosta Journal, (2008 Vol. 39 No 1), "Still very new to the trade, 'Juha' is the only other margined 'Striptease' sport that is relatively easy to find. The leaves of 'Juha' are narrower than would be expected for a 'Striptease' sport and the plant is smaller...was temporarily called 'Paradise Stripes' before it was introduced, at which time it was officially named 'Juha', a Hebrew word that means "gift from God."
