Empress Wu Hosta is a large, shade-loving perennial with huge, deep green leaves that can grow up to 3 feet wide. This plant is known for its impressive size, making it a great focal point in any shade garden. In midsummer, it also produces tall spikes of white or lavender flowers that rise above the foliage, adding an extra dimension to its beauty. This low-maintenance plant is easy to grow and is a great choice for adding texture and interest to shady areas of the garden.

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
