Folded Leaves Resemble Hands Hosta Praying Hands, 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 back side of the leaves. ‘Praying Hands’ has dark green leaves and are also heavily rippled with a thin, gold margin. Displays lavender flowers in late summer. A must have for any gardener looking for something unique! This low care perennial is ideal for shady positions. High-filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for clean, healthy growth. Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors, but hot afternoon sun is usually deadly to hostas. They are most at home in shady, woodland settings and often work well as specimen or edging plants. Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. *Upright Folded Dark Green Leaves*Gold Margin on Leaves*Lavender Flowers in Late Summer.
