Hosta 'Fair Maiden'

Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan and Clarence (C.H.) Falstad, III of Michigan registered this sport of H. 'Amber Maiden' in 1993. The medium size (13 inches high by 18 inches wide) mound bears pale lavender flowers in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar " at its best when young...As it matures, some leaves tend to develop the drawstring effect, though I've never seen a fully engulfed clump."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Very slow to increase and lacking in vigor, which is disappointing since it is such an attracive small hosta."
