    Seeing ‘Lakeside Ripples’ in person really opened my eyes to how beautiful this hybrid is. Prior, I had only ever seen pictures on the internet and was never much impressed.
    This hosta has such a distinct upright style. The way the leaves are held almost horizontal with just enough of the tip leaning down gives it a very strong ‘fountain’ appearance. The rippled edges also help to dramatically further this effect.
    In my opinion, it’s best viewed from a bit of a distance to allow the entire shape of the plant to be seen.
    Given its mature size, I think it would be too big for anything other than the back of a bed, or center of an island bed as the focus.
