Hosta 'Lakeside San Kao'

This plant is part of the Lakeside Series of hostas originated and registered in 1995 by Mary Chastain. It is a hybrid of an unnamed "Lakeside seedling" x H. 'Piedmont Gold' which forms a 19 inch high mound that is 49 inches wide. The leaves are slightly rippled and have deep veins. Lavender flowers bloom in July.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Daybreak'.

Seedlings include H. 'Lakeside San Ho Ta' and H. 'Lakeside Sassy Sally'.

According to a Google search, it appears that San Kao has something to do with beef noodles.

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