  • A variegated giantess

Hosta 'Wu-La-La' is a sport of 'Empress Wu'. It has similar size and presence as 'Empress Wu', but takes it up a notch with blue-green leaves and a distinct apple-green margins. The size and contrast of the leaves makes for a wonderful display in the garden. The leaves are of good substance and give way to violet flowers in early to midsummer. It will take about five years to reach its full size and maturity.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained soil with high organic content and slightly acidic to neutral pH. They prefer slightly sandy soil over heavy clays as they need aeration for the roots. Grow in high-filtered or dappled sunlight--they can tolerate morning sun but not hot afternoon sun. Hostas are prone to slugs and deer browsing, though some kinds with thicker foliage may not be damaged as badly. Apply slug bait in early spring before the leaves have unfurled to prevent damage. Divide large clumps, if necessary, in spring when sprouts appear, or late summer. Remove dead foliage from the garden in late fall to early winter.
