HOSTA 'Lakeside Cha Cha'
Hosta, Lakeside Cha Cha Plantain Lily, Plantain Lily
Hostas need shade, right? Not always. The variegated 'Lakeside Cha Cha’ needs a bit of sun to show it stongest colors. Hostas are herbaceous ornamentals prized for their mounding habit, toughness and leaves. The leaves of this one stand well above the ground on stout petioles (leaf stems) forming an upright mound. They are heart-shaped, substantial, lightly corrugated, and lime-green to chartreuse edged in thin bands of white. The flowers are pale lavender and tubular and appear on leafless stems held above the foliage in midsummer.
Like most hostas, ‘Lakeside Cha Cha’ grows best in full to partial shade, tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils, and prefers average, even moisture. It also needs at least some morning sun to maintain good leaf color.Use ‘Lakeside Cha Cha’ for contrasts of size, texture and color in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or massed as a groundcover.
