This plant of wonderment could justly be named “Empress Wow!” Very possibly the largest hosta you can buy, ‘Empress Wu’ eventually matures to 3-4 tall and spreads to 5-6 wide. Deeply veined, cordate-based, green leaves are 28" long with a wingspan of 25"wide. In early summer, pale lavender flowers on short scapes bloom just above foliage, each lovely flower subtended by a large pale lavender bract. Great, glossy leaves emerge blue-green in spring, and, by summer, mature to matte or slightly shiny green. While it takes five years for ‘Empress Wu’ to achieve her full ginormousness, she is an outstanding spectacle her very first season. This versatile giantess cannot be bettered when it comes to adding dimension, fullness, and all-out drama to a border. Thriving in neutral or acidic soil, sun and part shade, this hosta giantess demands little, while fulfilling a hosta lover’s fondest wishes. US PP 20774.
