A Hosta yingeri seedling,
this plant is part of the
Lakeside Series of hostas originated and registered in 1997
Chastain. The 10 inch high mound spreads to 37 inches in
width with moderately wavy foliage with thick substance.
Lavender flowers bloom starting in August.
The Hosta Handbook by
Mark Zilis (2000), "...'Did someone use "leaf
shine" on that clump?' might be your first remark when you view
'Lakeside Looking Glass'. Its shininess and dark green color
combined with a floppy mound appearance give this Hosta yingeri
derivative an unusual, but very attractive look."
Similar cultivars include H.
'Lakeside Midnight Miss'.
