Hosta 'Zebra Stripes'
Common Name: Plantain Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)

Hosta 'Zebra Stripes' is a Plant Delights hybrid forming bold mounds of foliage that emerge pure white with no green in sight in spring eventually developing green veins then a green flush between the veins with leaves turning fully green by summer. Morning sun may help plants maintain the white colouration longer versus planting in deeper shade. Lavender flowers in midsummer. 'Zebra Stripes' is similar to 'White Feather' but observations suggest that it might be stronger, especially in hot and humid summer climates.
