Touch of Class

Hosta "Touch of Class" review

PP13080 (15/10/2002). This has a really heavy leaf. It feels thick. It has an outstanding chartreuse color, blue and chartreuse, very striking. If you are already excited about hostas, wait until you see Hosta 'Touch of Class'. This is the first in a series of intentional hosta conversions from diploid to tetraploid. Hosta 'Touch of Class' comes from the popular Hosta 'June'. The central pattern of the doubly thick leaves is chartreuse-gold, surrounded by a very wide blue-green border. In midsummer the 2' wide clumps are topped with thick 2' tall scapes of light lavender flowers. We have grown this side by side with Hosta 'June' for several years and find Hosta 'Touch of Class' more intensely and more dramatically colored...we think you will agree!
