'Gypsy Rose' is a sport of 'Striptease'. It's similar to 'Striptease' but as it matures it stays considerably smaller. It has the same dark green margin, while the centre of the leaf changes from lighter green to creamy yellow, with the distinctive narrow white line between the centre and margin. This is my second one and I acquired it in spring 2009. My first was acquired in 2006 and a year later showed signs of Hosta Virus X. This one has been strange and part of it sported right away, but the last couple of years it has looked pretty good. Please feel free to to share your pictures of this hosta.
