Exceptionally large hosta, named in honour of Wu Zetain, concubine of Chinese Emperor Taizong in the 8th century. Whilst not officially an Empress she was de facto China's only female ruler in 4000 years. Huge dark green, deeply veined leaves, this plant can grow to well over one metre high and wide after a few seasons. Purple-mauve flowers. Fully hardy.
