    Hi Dave, link below can help answer your question in details. Garden plants can escape cultivation on their own. I’m not an expert of hosta, but yours look similar to Hosta lancifolia? You could verify its ID with the Midwest Region Hosta Society. Best wishes! http://www.phytoneuron.net/2016Phytoneuron/54PhytoN-HostaArkansas.pdf

    Appears to be reproducing by itself without the plant/root system being split and transplanted. Is this possible?

    Sure looks like a hosta bloom as well.
