Hosta 'Lakeside Sapphire Pleats'

This plant of unknown parentage is part of the Lakeside Series of hostas originated and registered in 1996 by Mary Chastain. The very heavily corrugated, cupped foliage forms a mound 16 inches high and 27 inches wide. It bears near white flowers in late June.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), "...has the appearance of a rich blue-green 'Tokudama' type."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Blue Fan Dancer' and H. 'Moscow Blue'.
