I have a question for all------ Does the phenomenon of streaking as we know it occur in any other genus? I have seen similar patterns, but do these plants yield streaked offspring?

Bill Meyer et al..
                     African Violets have shown striated leaves, similar to hostas; and resulting seedlings from same, came variegated e.g. two introductions: (S. 'Top Dollar' and S. 'Happy Harold').  Daylilies show similar tendencies, from their striped leaf types.

                                               ..several years ago, my H. 'Kinba' hosta-divisions: showed definite yellow streaking in leaves of several plants.  In the next growth cycle however, (last year?) these reverted back to the all green leaf form, so my questions are: why & how can this happen; and is there possibility, streak will reappear again a year later (this year?) and via further eye-divisions?
