This sport of 'Empress Wu' takes the size and presence of the massively popular hosta and takes it to the next level with an attractive margin. Blue-green leaves have striking apple-green margins, as well as good substance. Like 'Empress Wu', this hosta will take about 5 years to reach full maturity and size. Once you get there, the size of this plant will definitely be a conversation starter! Violet flowers appear in early to midsummer.
