'Cracker Crumbs' is s mini hosta - a sport of 'Shiny Penny'. I've had it since 2005 and I've been working it into a border. It does very well in the spring when it emerges bright yellow with a very thin green margin. It gradually greens up. Mine, however, had been decimated by nematodes by late August for the last couple of years. I no longer get rid of plants that are affected because the problem is still in the soil and I can't replace all the soil and start over. I am going to try growing some of this in a pot this year.
