I lost my Praying Hands last winter, but that was at the same time I had a Mystery Critter downing my plants. I'm told it was probably a gopher, but I saw it. If it was a gopher, it came from "The Land of the Lost". LOL!!!
Ooops! Giving away my age there...

I bought a Praying Hands from the gentleman who owns Going Bananas, at the Fairchild Gardens sale in November. He advised me that they are hardy where I live (zone 8B) if that helps you.
