A sport of Empress Wu, having the same huge presence in the garden but adding a apple-green margin to the blue-green leaves. Leaves have good substance and good slug resistance. It takes about 5 years for plants to mature to their full size, but it is worth the wait! Purple-lavender flowers on tall flower scapes in summer. 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'.
