After reading all the hype about it, I decided I needed to add "Empress Wu" to my garden. By now I should be wary (see my post regarding "Jurassic Park" http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/868583/), but I'm an eternal optimist, so I tried a couple online nurseries I usually buy from, but no luck. Everyone else seems to have had the same idea, and they were sold out.
That made me even MORE determined to have the Empress, so I Googled her and found a seller who still had stock. A little pricey, but I've paid more, and I could have her THIS SPRING, so I ordered two. After a 2-3 week wait, yesterday my "Empress Wu" arrived. Instead of two plants, the seller sent four 1" plugs with the Empress growing from them. As you can see, they are TINY. Let's hope she's a rapid grower!
