'Ice Cream' is a nice small hosta, a sport from 'Vanilla Cream'. It has creamy margins on green leaves. When it emerges, the varigation is subtle, but the green centre darkesn during the season. This one held up quite well in 2015. There are a couple other 'Vanilla Cream' sports - 'Wylde Green Cream' and 'Heart and Soul' which have reverse colouring from 'Ice Cream'. In fact, WGC and H&S may possibly be identical plants that sported in different gardens. I've had 'Ice Cream' since spring 2007. Please feel free to post your own pictures of this hosta.
