Hosta 'Lakeside Elfin Fire'

A cross between H. 'Little White Lines' × an unnamed seedling, this plant was registered in 2000 by Mary Chastain of Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee. This miniature size hosta grows to about 4 inches in height and 10 inches wide with moderately wavy, thin textured foliage. Medium to bright purple flowers bloom in July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Although an almost white cultivar, it thrives in good light and does not easily burn. Provides excellent color contrast in any bowl of mixed hosta varieties."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "Has less green streaking than the parent."
