This classic cultivar was
originated by Cynthia Tompkins of Oregon in 1923
and was registered by
American Hosta Society and her
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.
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
Grenfell (2009) states: "A classic hosta."
