A: Hi DERF, We recommend digging as deep as the rootball and about twice as wide to plant. Generally, the roots of the plant will be about the same height as the plant. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us on at firstname.lastname@example.org or (734) 654-7485. Best regards, Amanda
A: I put the plants in the ground as soon as they came, I'm sure they will be beautiful this summer, I would order them again!
A: Hello JavamamaIL, the Shadowland Empress Wu Prefers partial to full shade (4 or less hours of sun) and should do fine under a tree. When watering, water well, then wait till the ground dries again before watering. The Shadowland Empress Wu is not specifically rabbit proof but rabbits will eat anything if they are hungry enough. This is a very easy plant to care for and will grow out well without spreading or dividing. I hope this information helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us on our hotline (734) 654-7485. Happy planting, Jade
A: This plant has really become a great statement after 3 years in NW Illinois.It is growing under 3 trees with dappled sun light. Dry clay rocky soil and is thriving. The deer love it I have not seen any rabbit nibbles. We caged ours when planted to give it a chance to really grow, go with a large cage for growth. I planted them in places not to spilt just become huge. Once you plant them now in Spring let them do there thing and enjoy. I hope this helps
A: Hi Karen, Shadowland Empress Wu is hardy in zones 3-9. California ranges in zones 6-11, check the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone map to find out what zone you are in. If you have any other questions, feel free to call our hotline at (734) 654-7485. Best regards, Amanda.
A: Hosta's are pretty hardy plants but they're not the most drought tolerant so you have to keep it watered. Also, I'm not convinced that the plant that I received was actually an Empress Wu so buyer beware.
A: Depends on where you live. How rough are your winters, and do you have a greenhouse of any type to house them over the winter? I live in the NC mountains and winters get down to 8 degrees sometimes. I put my pots in my plastic greenhouse and they survive brilliantly. These hostas are gorgeous and extremely hardy. Treat them well and they will thrive and flourish.
A: I don't know. I have those perennials, but they are planted in beds. Pots may work in some cases. Try it, but consider the root formations. Large hostas likely will become root bound unless the pots are large enough.
A: Hello Jeanne, Empress Wu can be started in a pot, but eventually transplanting it into the ground as it does get quite large when it matures. Tigerlillies and Daylillies are tough, adaptable plants that will grow well in a pot, or in the ground. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us directly at (734) 654-7485. Happy planting, Jared
A: It would depend where you live. In my personal opinion I would not do it if they are doing OK in the ground. Ask a nursery in your area too.
