InfoSmall green wavy lanceolate leaves with streaks of white flashing throughout. Good substance and sun tolerance. Small, lavender spider flowers in August. Unstable, but fun to be around. Try it in a trough.
Alan Tower did a TC of Hosta laevigata and got some streakies. Bob Solberg acquired one and TC'd the streaked sport and named it 'Ray Of Hope'.
Narrow wavy leaves with good substance, with streaked variegation.
