Great Expectations Seedlings?

JANE100(WNYZ6)August 5, 2014

When weeded around my GE I found this clump underneath. First time ever I had seedlings. Dug them up and potted them. Should I leave the clump together or separate them into a couple of plants.?

These look very similar to new eyes growing at the bottom of the plant. Seedlings don't tend to come up perfectly variegated like these ones. How close to the mature division of Great Expectations were these?

I agree. This is likely part of the original plant, not a seedling. Most GE seedlings will be blue.

Yes, when I saw them they were very close to the mother plant. Was afraid I would chop them off and damage them. When I did , each eye seemed to separate itself with it's own roots. OK. I'll just consider this another GE. Thanks for the clarification. But should I keep the clump together or separate them into ind. plants.

leave them alone for this year ...

if it makes it thru winter.. we can decide what to do with them ...

i would not leave them in that wide flared shallow pot for winter ...

as noted.. they are not seedlings ... they are GE ...

Ken, the pic was taken from directly above so it looks shallow. It actually about 10in. deep. I've wintered quite a few last yr. in the same size. But I'll keep it in the pot till next yr. Thanks.
