(Designer Hosta) Hosta 'Praying Hands' is a fascinating new hosta with an unusual form that definitely makes it a collector's hosta. The upright, narrow, tightly folded leaves resemble hands folded in prayer. The folded leaves reveal the prominent veining on the backside of the leaves. 'Praying Hands' has dark green leaves and are also heavily rippled with a thin, gold margin. It displays lavender flowers in late summer. A must have for any gardener looking for something unique!

A Living Prayer Review by Melissa | Zone: 6
I just added two of these to my Hosta collection and love them. The previous reviewer gave me the idea to order one as a gift for a close relative who has just been diagnosed with cancer. She is also an avid gardener, who will appreciate a living prayer. (Posted on 5/17/2009)
Thoughtful Gift Review by Carol G | Zone: 5
This is one of my favorite Hosta. It looks great in a container either in the middle planted with Lamium or alone. As the name suggests it looks like the leaves are folding out and upward. It is a perfect plant to give someone who has suffered a loss. This is a permanent gift that does not have to be thrown out. It will come up year after year if planted in a shady part of a garden and thus becomes a new life on its own. It would be a very thoughtful gift or become one of your favorite plants to look for every spring. (Posted on 2/9/2009)
