Hosta 'Lakeport Blue'

This classic cultivar was originated by Cynthia Tompkins of Oregon in 1923  and was registered by The American Hosta Society and her son, Chet Tompkins, on her behalf in 1984. It is described as an H. 'Elegans' type plant forming a large size clump about 27 inches high by 63 inches wide. The foliage is blue-green, heavily corrugated, broadly ovate and has thick substance. Near white flowers bloom from mid-June into July on scapes up to 35 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "My first view of 'Lakeport Blue' was in Chet Tompkins' collection in 1988. All of my measurements and information were derived from this plant."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A classic hosta."
