Risky Business is an all white-centered sport of 'Striptease' that shares its vigor and luster. The dark green margins are slightly wavy and contrast beautifully with the bright white center. Pale lavender flowers top this hosta in mid-summer.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Tolerates full sun in cool summer climates. Elsewhere it is best in part shade (some morning sun). Plants are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions. Plants perform best in rich, moist, organic soils, with a preference for consistent moisture during the growing season, but plants have tolerance for some dry shade once established. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves. Divide plants as needed in spring or fall. Division is usually easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl.
