Amazing...the 2011 Hosta of the Year! Perhaps we should call this the un-hosta, since Hosta 'Praying Hands' is the most un-hosta-looking hosta to ever hit the market. Each small, 2' wide clump is composed of strangely folded, dark green crinkled leaves, each with a narrow, creamy yellow border. Indeed, a clump resembles a multitude of hands folded in prayer. Due to First Amendment restrictions, Hosta 'Praying Hands' cannot be planted near courthouses in Alabama or near any Federal government building. The upright clumps are topped with 18" spikes of light lavender flowers...a hummingbird treat in late summer. This sets a new standard for "unique" in the hosta world.
