Hosta 'Lakeside Dot Com'

A hybrid of two unnamed seedlings, this plant was registered in 1999 by Mary Chastain of Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee. It is a miniature size (4 inches high by 12 inches wide) hosta with leaves that are tapered at the base, shiny on the bottom and dull on top. The plant bears bell-shape purple flowers with white stripes in August.

This cultivar won the 2002 Mildred Seaver Award at the First Look hosta competition as the best seedling as chosen by the Attendees.


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
