Descriptions (from various sources):
Mary Chastain, our foremost active hosta breeder, was just soooooo generous in donating this one to First Look. She didn't just give us a division, she gave us the whole plant! 'Lakeside Treasure Chest' is the hottest thing to come along since 'Dorothy Benedict' as a breeder must-have. It offers everything you could want from a breeding plant - great vigor, blue color, heavy seed set with a good percentage of streaked seedlings, Mary's fab gene pool, and more. She said she wouldn't sell this one for $500, but she gave it to us. This will be the defining plant of the new century that everyone will want, but only one person will get this year.
