Praying Hands, Hosta

About This Plant

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. Leaf blade 7in by 2in . Smooth, olive-green with a very narrow yellow-gold margin, satiny, prominent veining; edge rippled and almost running together with the petiole, furled, lanceolate with an acute tip. Leaves are folded and rolled tightly in an upward stance.
