Mr. Gary, what an amazing new addition!
What trailer did you hire to haul it home and plant it so NEATLY with nary a smidge of blue tape. It could be a white bird of paradise plant! I am more impressed with your plant than I am with the fully grown huge EWu they feature in catalogs everywhere. Yours is the real growing hosta not yet up to its potential....and I really like to anticipate.
Oh my! How thick are those eyes? How large are those leaves already?
WOW Mr. Gary, where did you get your Wu? All the ones I've seen in the nurseries around here lately are about 1/4 that size.
I have twoEmpress Wu's, one I bought in the fall of 2010 and one in the spring of 2011 (before they became popular). I bought both with 3 three eyes. About the same size as yours.
The one I have growing in the sun multiplied to 6 in 2012, 9 in 2013, and so far I've counted 19 this year. I hope you've given yours a ton of space. I can wait to see mine leaf out this year.
