result of a cross of H. 'Lakeside Ripples' × a blue seedling,
this cultivar was originated by
Mary Chastain of
Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee and registered by
Ran Lydell of
Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York in 2001. The heavily
rippled foliage forms a giant size hosta about 32 inches high that spreads to 64
inches in width. The leaves are twisted at the tips, have
moderate corrugation and have thick substance. Dense clusters of
pure white flowers bloom starting in mid-July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...a tremendous hosta...its
flower performance alone makes it worth growing...one of the
rare originations from
Mary Chastain of Tennessee not bearing the "Lakeside"
