This cultivar was registered in 1997 by
Mary Chastain of
Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee.
It is a hybrid of an unnamed "Lakeside seedling" x H. 'Spritzer' which
forms a medium size, dense mound about 16 inches high and 42 inches wide. The
leaves are heavily rippled with average substance. Its lavender
flowers bloom in August followed by viable seeds..
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Its flowing mound habit
and heavily rippled foliage give 'Lakeside Party Dress' the
appearance of constant motion."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Increases rapidly...Veins that are, seemingly
uniquely, the same color as the leaf margin."
