registration materials state: "Nearly round,
corrugated leaves and extremely fertile pollen. Finds
the path to pod-set even on difficult cultivars.
According to Joanna, "...origination that I received from Jim at the Eastern
Michigan Hosta Society annual trade in 2009.
I have used PC GPS in many crosses over the years. The
hybrid is extremely fertile both ways. The powerful
pollen is usually able to coax even the most reluctant
pod parents. It even set a pod on Krossa Regal. Inside
the pod was one perfect plump seed. Sadly, it did not
germinate, but it was great fun to try."
