First marketed in 2000, the hosta cultivar 'Maid Marian' was hybridized by Jim Schwartz. It is one of a series of cultivars with names inspired by the address of his business: 11676 Robin Hood Drive (Dubuque), Iowa.[1] For 'Robin Hood' et al., see 'Also see' section below. 'Maid Marian' is a large Hosta that grows in half or full shade, reaching a height of 50–60 cm. It has large yellow leaves with a wavy green margin.[2] Jim's Hostas is now owned by Uniquely Hostas.

I have not been able to establish from which of the 24 accepted species the 'Maid Marian' variety was bred, but perhaps this is a moot point since the species are easily interbred.[3] See the entry on Hosta Robin Hood for information on hostas in general.
