Description / Praying Hands Hosta Plant

A highly prized and often difficult-to-locate cultivar, 'Praying Hands' is the Hosta lover's holy grail. There is simply no other Hosta like it, with its unique tightly folded, upraised, golden-edged foliage. Heavily rippled with faint vertical gold accents echoing the golden margins, the leaves really do suggest hands at prayer.

Instead of opening outward from the top of their stems, these leaves point straight up, narrow and inturned. Dark green and deeply corrugated, the foliage sports a pencil-thin edge that accentuates the heavy rippling of the leaves. The vertical veining on each leaf also bears golden highlights, giving the foliage a corrugated look that is most attractive.

Reaching 14 inches high and about 18 inches wide, 'Praying Hands' is a stunning sight in the partly shaded garden or container. Midsummer blooms of lavender arise on long, slender stalks, but are insignificant enough to snip off -- the foliage display is simply too impressive for distractions!

'Praying Hands' was introduced by Gerald Williams in 1996. It makes a fine companion to other Hosta cultivars, particularly those with wide, outspread leaves such as <#prodlink#"49478">'Touch of Class or <#prodlink#"44299">'Wide Brim.' Zones 3-8.
