PRAYING HANDS HOSTA
Hosta 'Praying Hands'
This hosta grows in moist, organic soil, and prefers a slightly acidic to neutral soil pH (5.5 to 7.5). Morning sun is fine and will help intensify the foliage but it prefers part shade to full shade especially in the summer.
A unique hosta with upright, tightly folder leaves that resemble hands, hence the name ‘Praying Hands’. The dark green leaves are heavily rippled with narrow gold margins. Lavender flowers emerge in late spring.
Susceptible to deer.
Can be used as an accent or mass planting.
Introduced in 1996, this non-native perennial was introduced in the United States by plant breeder Jerry Williams.
