Striptease is an unusual H. ‘Gold Standard’ mutation, a very dark green leaf where the green is actually a very wide margin. The center is a thin strip of gold with a unique strip of white that surrounds the gold center. The white band is sometimes not seen until the plant become mature. The satiny heart shaped leaves are about 5” x 6”.
The vigorous growing 2.5′ wide 2’ tall clump is topped with fragrant violet flowers on 2′ scapes in July.
