Descriptions:
Hosta 'Lakeside Contender' (one of the contenders in a group of yellows that were being considered and evaluated) might be described as a large, upright gold with a shiny finish. This strong plant offers a sculptured look in the garden. The broad oval leaves with a cordate base come to a point at the tips. Near-white flowers complement its color scheme. The parentage is H. 'Newberry Gold' x H. 'Sun Glow'. It is a 1998 introduction [MC].
This rugged variety displays leaves with a shiny golden finish.
Leaves are oval and pointed forming an impressive garden sculpture.
