I received this Hosta several years ago from a friend who said it was "Cracker Crumbs" but it has never developed the dark green edge. Does the edge develop over time or do I have something else here? The leaf shape looks right to me. Sorry, the photo is a bit over exposed; I can never seem to get the lighting right.

It should have the dark margin at this time of year. Maybe you have a sport. How large is it? Maybe you've got 'Lemon-Lime'.

It measures about 9"x9" and about 5" tall. It does look like lemon-lime, I'll see when it blooms and what colour. Thanks Ann!
