Hosta 'Peppermint Cream'
 

A sport of H. 'Vanilla Cream', this cultivar was discovered by Handy Hatfield of Ohio in 1988 and was registered on his behalf in 2009 by Kevin Walek (Hosta Registrar). It forms a small size (10 inches high by 23 inches wide) mound of foliage which has a faint green margin on the gold leaf. The leaves are moderately corrugated, broadly ovate and dull on top. Lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Comparing the three 'Vanilla Cream' sports, 'Heart and Soul' lands in between, having a darker green margin than 'Peppermint Cream', but lighter than 'Wylde Green Cream'."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Emerald Scepter'.
