The Tallest Hosta with Huge, Dark Green Leaves

The Hosta Empress Wu, Hosta 'Empress Wu', is a very impressive hosta that rises above any other hosta plant! It was named in honor of the only female emperor to rule China.

Empress Wu produces a strong clump forming plant that is a fast grower with an outstanding upright growth habit. Measuring 15 or more inches across, the dark green leaves are massive!

Because of its size and fast growth rate, Empress Wu demands a soil that is consistently moist but not soggy. In order for Empress Wu to reach its mature growth size, it needs consistent soil moisture and fed three times per season.

It is a low care perennial that is ideal for a shady area. This hosta grows best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. High-filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for clean, healthy growth.
