Positive streaker71 On Sep 15, 2003, streaker71 from New Richmond, WI wrote:

A very variable plant to say the least. Streaking is unstable. To my knowledge this is not a regesterd cultivar but is rather a line of small streaked breeding hosta that was developed by BIll Nash. Produces a wide range of seedlings that range from streaked,edge variegated, center variegated, and green.Prolific pod set.
