Asparagaceae Empress Wu Hosts will eventually mature to 4-5' tall and spread to 6-8' wide with huge, deeply veined, green leaves to 28" long by 25" wide. Leaves emerge blue-green in spring but lose the waxy coating and blue tint as they mature by summer to matte or slightly shiny green.

In mid-summer it is topped with lavender flowers on stem 5' tall! What a glorious sight in a partly shaded garden!

Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.

 Part sun to full shade

Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.

Drought tolerant once established.

Lavender / white flowers, non-fragrant. Blooms July to August
