H. Empress Wu. Fourth Season. (Leaf = 22″)
H. Empress Wu was registered with a height of 50″ and a leaf length of 28″. This was the originator’s specimen/divisions and experience over the last ten years suggests a height of about 40″ and a a leaf length of 22″ is more easily achievable from tissue-cultured stock.
In recent years hostas with larger leaves then H. ‘Empress Wu’ have been introduced but are not yet available on the UK market. (2021). US based Land of the Giants Hosta Farm specialises in these. See: https://landofthegiantshostafarm.com/shop/g/giantland-big-bastard/.
