I need your best advice, guys. I have been eyeballing my Striptease for a while. It just doesn't look right. Please let me know if this looks like Virus X. I do not have the option of getting a strip test, right now - it's either trash it or plant it somewhere away from everything else. You guys are experts. I will use your thoughts to make my decision. Thank you so much.

Notice the bleed isn't always on the actual vein. It was subjected to a TON of water and clay for soil. It is majorly stressed... or is it death to my entire hosta garden?

I think it's just stressed. But hopefully, someone else will chime in here and give you a more definitive answer. I wouldn't trash it just yet.

I think the colorations are weather related. They are pretty smooth, not mottled like HVX.

I agree -- looks okay to me!
