Hosta 'Lakeside Roy El'
 

This cultivar of unidentified parentage which was registered in 1994 by Mary Chastain of Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee. It forms a medium size mound (17 inches high by 43 inches wide) of dark green foliage with creamy yellow to white marginal variegation. The leaves are deeply lobed at the base, moderately corrugated and have thick substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Mary Chastain named this cultivar for her beloved husband, Roy L. Chastain, so you know it has to be good! The rich foliage colors, thick substance, and large size mound size make this an imposing plant in the shade garden. Mary has also used it extensively in her breeding program."
