Is there only the one photo available to nursery catalogs of Empress Wu?

I, personally, uploaded a pic of our EW in competition with it's neighbor Hollywood Lights.

What's the whine I wonder? It's a really new plant, so 'mature' pictures are lacking.

I always enjoy the picture of the now late Brian (heart rending) measuring the O.S. plant.

For Virginia's sake, I'm glad one of their plants finally made the famous list.

I still and will always label it 'Xanadu' Empress Wu, to remind me of all the wondrous Xanadu series these two folk introduced to the Hosta world.

Search this forum for Empress Wu, we had pictures there in several threads. They will get big very fast. Mine is nearly as big as those mature fotos after 2 years in the ground, but I started with 2 or 3 eyes.

Wow, I didn't know that was Brian Skaggs in that photo. Actually, I didn't know who bred that plant.
