Descriptions (from various sources):
This is the tetraploid form of H. 'Exotic Treasure'.
Jan had a lab in the Netherlands intentionally induce full tetraploidy with a chemical.
All genetic layers are tetraploid, so hybridizing with this hosta can produce tetraploid seedlings.
Leaves are thicker than 'Exotic Treasure' and the plant is smaller, 10-12 inches tall depending on how much green is in leaves.
