Lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August.
Hosta Journal, (2008 Vol. 39 No 1),
"Another similar sport, never introduced to the trade is 'Stripped Naked'. A
dark green margin circles a white center that is occasionally dusted with green.
Instead of the characteristic white line,...has highly irregular, light green
flashes where the center and margin colors overlap. Overall, the distinguishing
features...have proven unstable. "
An article by
Warren I. Pollack in
Hosta Journal (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled
Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for
Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas
which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have
indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same
plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary
in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the
casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the
plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
