Hosta 'Lakeside Little Gem' is a small plant. Its heavy substance and small, ruffled leaves won the hearts of visitors in Germany in '92 when it was voted the favorite plant of the Garden Trial Days. It has also been a section winner in our AHS shows. Rich purple flowers complement the deeply colored leaves. The parentage is unknown. It is a 1993 registration. The leaf is ovate with a rounded base. The seeds are viable.
