This amazing 2002 introduction started as a mutation of the wildly popular Hosta 'Striptease'. Hosta 'Risky Business', however, boasts a pure white center (that holds all season) instead of the yellow center of its parent. Possessing the same incredible vigor, it forms a dense 2' wide clump in short order. In midsummer, the clumps are topped with 2' tall scapes of hummingbird-acclaimed violet flowers. Chalk this one up to the "winner" category!
