A show stopper! One of the largest hostas on the market, Empress Wu has huge dark green leaves with deep veins that at maturity measure up to 1.5 feet wide and long. Lavender flowers in summer. Plants may take up to 5 years to fully mature, but it is worth the wait! Hostas adapt well to varying conditions but grow best in moist soil. Their foliage provides wonderful color and texture to the garden! Mature plant size is 3-4' tall by 5-6' wide, flowers to 4'.
