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?


RE: New Edition To Our Garden

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.
