This is a great example of me not doing my research before buying! Because of the name I had ... presumed ... this was a smallish hosta. All the way home I silently wondered just how large this hosta would become! It turns out to be a two foot diameter beast; and even for its solid dark green (foreboding?) leaves it's well worth it, because it presents an example of 'cupped' leaves on a very long petiole; something like hosta Popcorn except more exaggerated. In the end the aesthetics of the plant won me over.
