Hosta 'Maple Leaf'

This sport of H. 'Frances Williams' was registered by Eldren Minks of Minnesota in 1972. The characteristics are the same as its parent plant. This large size (26 inches high) cultivar has thick substance, is heavily corrugated, has a deeply lobed base and a distinct tip. Unfortunately, it is susceptible to spring desiccation burn (see below). It bears large clusters of near white flowers from mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...could not distinguish it from 'Frances Williams'. It even shares the spring desiccation burn problem..."

Sports include H. 'Albert Lea' and H. 'Golden Maple'.
