One of the weirdest introductions to come along: extremely elongated dark green leaves have a waxy sheen and a very thin yellow rippled border. They are folded and wavy, giving a twisted appearance and look like no other hosta leaf. Light lavender flowers will appear midsummer. We are offering 2nd year tissue-cultured plants that are rooted and growing well.
Amazing! Perhaps we should call this the un-hosta, as Hosta 'Praying Hands' is the most un-hosta looking hosta to ever hit the market. Each small 18" wide clump is composed of strangely folded dark green crinkled leaves, each with a narrow cream border. Indeed a clump resembles a multitude of hands folded in prayer. The upright clumps are topped with 18" spikes of light lavender flowers in late summer. This sets a new standard for unique in the hosta world.
