I took this photo of Hosta 'Praying Hands' at the Memphis Botanic Garden yesterday. I like it from this angle. They had all of the Hostas in ugly pots stuck in the ground slightly. Is there a reason for this? I always plant mine in the ground.

Nice picture.
It might be so visitors get a better view. You liked it from that angle.
It might be protection from voles.

I have had Praying a Hands for some time and just love it. I tend to go for the odd ball things. I wonder what the significance of that is Confused

Thx for thumb.
Just did a search on. hosta pot voles and guess what. Memphis botanical came up.

"Rodents called voles eat the roots of hostas, so they are often grown in containers and then planted into the ground."

Hmmm wonder if I should try that with lilies ?

Thanks for that! I knew there had to be a good reason for that. I thought they were just too lazy to plant them. LOL. It's been a long week. I just didn't like the way the pot was sticking out of the ground. If I was in charge, those pots would be better hidden.

I wonder if anyone has a thread for the strangest Hostas.
