This med. sized hosta is simply gorgeous. I've grown Touch of Class for 4 yrs. The unique coloration and upright habit are beautiful and make this one of my favorites.

The plant's "Touch" , so to speak, has widened from when I purchased the last two seasons. Probably the amount light it receives determines the width, maybe. I liked it more when just a sliver of highlight. I'm moving it to a shadier spot and see what happens.

The leaves have an incredible thick substance and are held more upright than Hosta 'June'. Discovered by Hans Hansen of Shady Oaks Nursery, LLC. PP#13,080
