Hosta 'Cracker Crumbs'

A sport of H. 'Shiny Penny', this cultivar was registered by Bob Solberg in 2002. This miniature size (5 inches high by 19 inches wide) plant has twisted, slightly rippled, slightly wavy, shiny foliage. The leaves are golden yellow with a very narrow light green marginal variegation. Pale purple flowers bloom in July. It sets seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The addition of a green margin to the already attractive gold foliage of 'Shiny Penny' makes this an excellent choice as a specimen plant for the shaded rock garden or trough."
