  • Shade tolerance: Hostas, including the Empress Wu variety, are known for their ability to thrive in shady areas of the garden where other plants may struggle.
  • Easy care: Hostas are generally low-maintenance plants, and the Empress Wu is no exception. They require regular watering, but otherwise are relatively easy to care for and can be grown in a variety of soil types.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during the hot summer months. Ensure the soil remains moist, but not waterlogged. Water deeply once a week, rather than frequent shallow watering
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged leaves and flower stalks
  • Pruning: Trim back the entire plant to about 6 inches above the ground in the fall to prepare for winter dormancy
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced fertilizer in the spring and again in midsummer to encourage healthy growth
