Aptly named due to its folding foliage, the Praying Hands Hosta is a striking specimen. A unique hosta, Praying Hands produces intricately rippled long green leaves with a golden margin. Growing to around 18 inches tall, it is perfect for a shady spot. Purple-blue flowers develop above the foliage on long stems in the summer.
The Praying Hands Hosta is a clump-forming perennial with a semi-upright habit. It is hardy in zones 3 to 9 and low maintenance once established. A true shade lover, the Praying Hands Hosta is equally at home in a border or a container. This perennial is ideal for adding to a city or cottage garden scheme.
Praying Hands Hosta Care
The Praying Hands Hosta is happiest when grown in either full or partial shade. It favors a fertile and moist soil that is well drained. To prevent the large leaves from drying out, water this plant regularly during dry spells. Apply an organic mulch in spring or a slow-release, balanced feed.
Once the flowers fade, you can cut the flowering stems back to the base. In early winter after the foliage has died back, cut back all growth to ground level and apply mulch. Container-grown plants will require more frequent watering during the summer to prevent the soil from drying out.
Praying Hands Hosta Spacing
The Praying Hands Hosta generally grows to 14 to 18 inches tall and 12 to 16 inches across. A spacing of 16 inches from other plants will allow its semi-erect foliage to be appreciated.
