Just when you thought it was safe to open another hosta catalog...wrong! Hosta 'Hanky Panky' is yet another in the line of amazing sports from Hosta 'Striptease'. We think this is possibly the most beautiful and unique of the bunch. H. 'Hanky Panky' makes a fast growing 3' wide clump of dark green leaves surrounded by a gold border with a narrow white thread between the two patterns. As the season progresses, the yellow edge changes to white with an unusual light green overlay. Trust me, you've never seen a hosta like this before. The clumps are topped with 2' scapes of violet flowers in summer.
