Hosta 'Striker'

This sport of the species, H. venusta, was registered by Ran Lydell of Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York in 2000. It grows into a small size hosta about 9 inches high and 29 inches wide with narrowly ovate leaves that have smooth texture and thin substance. The medium purple flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I cannot, however, distinguish it from 'Little White Lines'."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Undemanding. One of the best small variegated hostas that will do well anywhere."
