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 'Newberry Gold' x 'Sun Glow'. It is a 1998 introduction.
