About This Hosta

'Kingsize' is a sport of the fabled 'Empress Wu'. It has enormous ,shiny dark green leaves and like its parent grows into an impressive mound. It is a little faster growing than Empress Wu and does not have the waxy coating of its parent so the leaves are noticeably darker looking.
