I have heavy clay everywhere around my home. I have planted this in full shade and partial shade. This plant divides well and grows huge. Slugs and grasshoppers don't seem to like this hosta as much as my other hostas. This is one plant I never seem to worry about. Handles dry spells and heavy rainy weather well. Great plant.
Shadowland® 'Empress Wu' Hosta hybrid

- Part Shade to Shade
- Mature Size

The largest known hosta available! This massive plant forms a gigantic upright mound of huge, thick, dark green leaves topped with pale reddish violet flowers. It will make a fantastic statement in your shade garden!
Great in landscapes or containers.
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, organically enriched soil and full to part shade. Clean away the dead foliage after frost to prevent insect problems.
