More Information

Description Shadowland® 'Empress Wu' Hosta is genuinely one of the largest hostas we've ever seen! Given enough time, this hosta will reach epic proportions, creating a prehistoric display you'll look forward to every year. Huge, thick textured blue-green leaves reach over 18 inches across and are resistant to slug damage. Large, pale-violet flowers hover over the foliage midsummer. Hostas are incredibly easy to grow and maintain, even in city environments. Find a shady corner of your garden and watch it thrive! Details Botanical name: Hosta 'Empress Wu'
Patent #: USPP 20,774
Common name: Hosta
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Shade (< 4 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3-4' X 5-6'
Flower color: pale violet
Foliage color: blue-green
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Accent, background, border, container gardening, foundation planting, hedge, massing, privacy, screen, specimen, woodland
How To Grow Soil: Performs well in average or fertile soil.
Light: Thrives in shade (< 4 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun).

Fertilizing: In spring, a light fertilizer can be applied around the emerging plant, but not touching it.
Winterizing: Leave foliage standing in fall to help protect the crown. If desired, a layer of mulch can be applied in a 2" layer very near the base.
Maintenance & pruning: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
