Buckeye Extravaganza Sport?

I separated my Buckeye Extravaganza into 4 plants. 3 bloomed as expected. The fourth came out looking like this. The original has the dark only on the edge. Would this be considered a sport or just a regression I should compost?

Hmm - what is the regression? I thought they are all sports - good and not so good.

Your call - if you like it - you grow it, may be consider naming it as a sport. If not so much - give it as a birthday gift to your non-violet friends. It is too lovely just to compost it.

Coincidentally that is one of the varieties that this newbie is trying to grow. I think this variation looks fantastic. Were all the leaves from the same mother plant? If you like it, then keep it by all means.

Yes all the plants were from one leaf. I think I will be keeping it. You guys are right, It does look great. Hopefully it is stable. The rest look like this one:

Very cute - love the water drop. As a suggestion - if you turn on a regular incandescent light nearby - the drop will shine.

I like it better than the original :)
