This new hosta takes the size and presence of the massively popular hosta Empress Wu and takes it to the next level with an attractive margin. Blue-green leaves have striking apple-green margins. Violet flowers appear in early to midsummer. Ht 1.2 M (4 ft). 4 to 5 years to reach full maturity.
They do best in light shade but will tolerate full sun or deep shade. Space plants 30-45 cm (12-18 in) apart. Hosta thrives in moist rich soil with added leaf mold or compost. Cover the root with 2-4 cm (1-1.5 in) soil. Remove faded flower stalks as self sown seedlings are inferior. Winter protection needed only in severe climates.
