Hosta 'Lakeside Zinger'

This fast growing, small size hosta was registered in 1998 by Mary Chastain of Lakeside Acres Nursery in Tennessee. It forms a 6 inch high mound that spreads to 17 inches in width with wavy foliage that has green flecks. Purple flowers bloom in July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Will take some sun and grows well in practically any situation. The small mound it forms makes it ideal for the trough or tray as well as the rockery."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Can develop entirely green leaves, so regular division of the clump is essential...Green dots on the leaf margin. Large conspicuous variegated flower bracts. "



These 2010 photos were taken at the Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict Hosta Hillside in Michigan, tours and vendors at The American Hosta Society National Convention in Minnesota, Wade and Gatton Nursery and Wade Botanical Gardens in Ohio, Toledo Botanical Garden and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
