First Frost sported last year with some leaves divided half blue and half yellow. I left it on the plant and waited to see if it would come back this year. It has and so I divided it off.
Now it is putting out some all yellow leaves,

That's pretty cool, Dave. Maybe you'll get something special out of it. Who knows? Not us, that's why we try these things. Good luck! And please show us pics when you can throughout the season?

RE: First Frost Sport

That is exactly what my Nefertiti is doing right now. I first noticed that it sported a green eye, so I separated it off. Now, the center leaves, just like yours, are solid yellowish/green looking. Totally different than Nefertiti or the green sport. I'm not going to have anything left of the original plant! Looks like I'll have to pick up another one.

RE: First Frost Sport

Mine (FF) did the same half/half for two years but looks completely normal this year. I'm waiting to see if any later leaves come in with the half/half coloring...
