Hosta ‘Cracker Crumbs’

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Bright little miniature. Gold hosta with green margin, somewhat wavy leaf. Quite bright when it emerges, but by the end of the season has more brassy tones. Good substance, and does quite well providing you start off with reasonably robust stock. My own plants are from divisions grown on site, not tissue culture, so they are strong and reliable. One of the brighter varieties to put in a miniature trough display, and apparently is a popular accent plant with the bonsai brigade.

Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Cracker Crumbs’

Description

Hosta ‘Cracker Crumbs’. Miniature Hosta with yellow-gold leaves and a green margin.

Cultivation

All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.

Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.

Interest and use
