Common Name: Hosta, lakeside cupcake hosta, plantain lily
‘Lakeside Cupcake’ is an award winning small hosta that is the perfect size for troughs or other small containers!
This small sized selection from the Lakeside series has neary round leaves emerge in spring with blue-green margins and gold centers. As the leaves mature, they become cupped with blue margins, creamy white centers, and green jetting between the two. Pale-lavender flowers bloom in midsummer.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
