Hosta 'Mary Marie Ann'
 

Registered in 1982 by Larry Englerth of Michigan, this is an open-pollinated seedling of H. 'Aoki'. The medium size (14 inches high by 30 inches wide) plant has twisted, corrugated leaves with medium lavender flowers from late July into August.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Very prone to pest damage but well worth the trouble to keep the attractive leaves intact. Lovely in a round or oval, antique stone bowl...The leaf margin is seersuckered, growing at a different rate from the lighter center, causing the blade to twist and distort and the margin to pucker."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Alley Oop', H. 'Aoki Variegated', H. 'Little Caesar' and H. 'Maya'.
