Hosta
'Winsome'
 

This is a seedling of H. 'Pin Stripe Sister' which was registered by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 1996. The small size (8 inches high by 14 inches wide) plant has heart shaped, slightly cupped foliage. In July, it produces pale lavender flowers in clusters on scapes about 17 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This may be the best of Dr. Dick & Jane Ward's miniatures out of 'Pin Stripe Sister'."

The Book of Little Hostas (2010) says: "Prefers to grow in dappled shade and will make a feature plant in a raised bed or woodland garden.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A strong and vigorous grower with very large flowers for such a small hosta."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Daisy Doolittle', H. 'Lakeside Miss Muffet', H. 'Little Wonder' and H. 'Thumbelina'.
