Chris Review by Chris - GA, Marietta

I bought 3 of these several years ago from Spring Hill, and couldn't be happier! They continue to thrive and multiply, and I've been able to separate the tubers in the spring to make additional plants. They have large beautiful platter size leaves, and large, tall white blooms in early summer. Very happy! Planted in rich dark soil with good drainage.

Cultivate an Empress Wu Hosta plant, which grows an impressive 4 to 5 feet tall and 8 to 9 feet wide. The Hosta Empress Wu creates a mound of large, deeply veined leaves – some measuring up to 1½ inches across. For color, this hosta also produces bright lavender blooms from early to midsummer.

With an Empress Wu Hosta plant from our flower nursery, you add stature plus a splash of color to shady areas in the garden. The Hosta Empress Wu flower, which can grow up to 5 feet tall, makes a great backdrop for shorter plants. You will love this hosta for its huge mounds of deeply veined green leaves and its brilliant bell-shape lavender flowers. These perennial flowers, which thrive in well-drained, moisture-retentive soil, blossom for 2 to 3 weeks in summer.
