medium size, non-registered sport of H.
originated by Jan van den Top of the
Netherlands. The foliage is wavy and twisted with irregular streaky
foliage which changes colors as the season progresses.
It bears pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August
followed by viable seeds.
One source indicated that
'Playmate' may be more of a "collector's item". Those
looking for a 'Striptease' type hosta should probably
look at other cultivars.
