Empress Wu Hosta



If you're looking for a plant for the shade garden that is equal parts impressive and unique, look no further than 'Empress Wu'. One of the largest hosta varieties available, it forms a huge mound of gigantic, deeply veined, dark-green, two-foot leaves. Spikes of reddish-violet, tubular flowers rise just above the foliage from early to midsummer. A perfect choice to create an enormous focal point in the garden or as an endcap for borders!
