This is one of a small handful of white-centered hostas that is truly worth growing. Hosta 'Peppermint Ice' is composed of nearly round black-green foliage, highlighted by a 1" wide central band of gold. As the leaf matures, the gold central pattern changes to cream, then pure white, for a striking pattern that lasts the rest of the season. Although this is a hybrid of H. 'William Lachman' x H. montana, it looks like a jazzed-up version of H. 'Summer Music'. Each 2' wide clump is topped in midsummer with a 2' tall scape of lavender flowers. This is truly a dazzling new introduction!
