Hosta 'Lakeside Coal Miner'

This cultivar of a self-pollinated seedling is part of the Lakeside Series of hosta cultivars developed by Mary Chastain. It was registered in 1998 and forms a medium sized (17 inches high) mound of heavily rippled, dark green foliage. Medium purple flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "In both foliage and flower it shows the strong influence of Hosta ventricosa in its background, though the flowers are not as bell-shaped as Hosta ventricosa."
