Lakeside Looking Glass

Hosta "Lakeside Looking Glass" review

'Lakeside Looking Glass' received its name because its finish brings to mind the lens of deep green mirrored sunglasses. Soft green veining runs through the dark shiny finish. The medium-sized elongated leaves have flat ends. Flowers are spider shaped and lilac in color. This 1997 introduction is an Hosta yingeri hybrid. The leaves are elliptic with a rounded base. The petioles are blue-black [MC]. Very shiny dark green leaves allow you to see your reflection in them, therefore, so named by Mary. Long blunt leaves add to the desirable qualities. Leaves have an oval shape and lavender yingeri type flowers appear in August. Small clump of highly ruffled, shiny dark green oval leaves. Small lavender flowers in July to August. Hosta yingeri type. Medium. Named because you can see reflections in the very shiny dark green leaves. The richly colored leaves are marked with lighter colored veins. The long blunt leaves add to the desirable qualities of the variety.
