One a day - Hosta 'Mill's Repechage'

And now for something completely different.
I have a whole bunch of "seedlings" in the Hosta Mill.
A large part of them have H. 'Grand Slam' as pod parent, and most of these have H. longipes characteristics, as is to be expected with this pedigree.

But every now and again something you didn't expect turns up.
The plant in the picture is in a 20 gallon container.
It's by far my largest GS-seedling.
And it's shiny, above and below.

Very tropical looking, with those glossy leaves. Good thing you kept this!
