InfoStable, marginally-variegated sport of H. 'Empress Wu' that withstands full sun.
Margins are chartreuse when grown in shade & creamy white when grown in full sun.
Very large and stately.
May be the most colorful sport of 'Empress Wu' to date. The yellow margins are vibrant and hold that color, setting off the green centers well. The entire clump may remind you of the classic hosta 'Sagae'.
