Hosta 'Mistress Mabel'
 

The result of the cross of an unnamed seedling (H. 'Beatrice' F6 x H. 'Blue Moon') x H. plantaginea, this cultivar was registered by Wm and Eleanor Lachman of Massachusetts in 1995. It grows to 17 inches in height by 4 feet in width with foliage that is slightly wavy, slightly corrugated and with average substance. The very pale purple fragrant flowers form dense clusters and bloom in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "A very similar-looking plant with lavender flowers that open in July and are not fragrant has been sold under this name for a few years."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Austin Dickinson', H. 'Diana Remembered' and H. 'Emily Dickinson'.
