Descriptions:
Looking for a miniature hosta for that special spot in the garden or to jazz up a trough of other minis? 'Cracker Crumbs', introduced at the 2002 AHS Convention in Spokane, WA in June, has bright shiny, gold leaves with a shiny, dark margin that looks painted on. Like it's parent, 'Shiny Penny', the color becomes chartreuse, almost coppery in summer's heat. It has great substance and makes a tight, fast growing mound.
Nice lavender flowers in mid-summer...
This new mini is a sport of H. 'Shiny Penny': shiny leaves emerge bright
yellow-gold surrounded by a dark green margin that looks painted on. As the season progresses the color becomes chartreuse and then almost coppery and continues to darken until late summer. A superior grower with great substance and makes a tight clump topped with dark lavender flowers in midsummer.
