Empress Wu has huge dark green, deeply veined leaves of good substance can measure more than 1½' wide and long. Large leaves are formed as a young plant, though entire clump takes about 5 years growing in the ground to achieve mature size.
Strongly upright habit, forming a very tall and wide clump
Pale reddish violet flowers appear just above the foliage in early to midsummer
An outstanding focal point and topic of conversation in your shade garden
