Hello. I have several large hostas in a good spot and they are growing really well. After about 3 years the Sum and Substance and Sieboldiana are already about 6 feet wide and 3 feet tall when they are leafed out (I'll post pictures maybe today at some point). I also have two other large cultivars--T-Rex, and Titanic in around the same spot that are a year younger and have almost caught up in growth. I am trying to grow more of the big cultivars to a very large size. I am hoping to try breeding them at some point to produce something different--or who knows what. I'd like to have a bunch of really mature and healthy plants to work with first. At any rate, if anyone has an Empress Wu they are trying to get rid of or sell I'd love to have this variety as well and add it to my plot. I'd also be interested in any other varieties that are giant only. As I say I've got lot's of room and a good spot, maybe there is someone out there that bought an Empress Wu and has trouble growing it, or it has become too big in their landscape? I can drive out to Vancouver or wherever to dig it up. Let me know. . .
