Empress Wu Hosta is a large shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for its foliage.  The huge 2 foot green basal leaves lose their waxy coating and blue tint as they mature, and are deeply veined and corrugated.  Small bell-like pale reddish-violet flowers raise up in terminals from the rootstalk above the mound in mid summer attracting butterflies and pollinators.  Best color in partial sun and moist well-drained soils.
