Captian Kirk at it again

I got this one last year from Hallsons so it is new to me. After seeing joebar's post on Captain's Adventure I wanted to show these photos I took a few minutes ago. When the Captain unfurled I had this second cousin pop out. I was going to wait and see if it happened again next year or if it was a fluke but I do like the little guy. Thank you for viewing. Have a great day all, Paula

How fun!

I love finding sports in my garden too :-)


RE: Captian Kirk at it again

How do you know it is a sport? Cannot wait to recognize one!
I have a couple of strange leaves on my dark green Lederhosen, which are long and skinny, lanceolate I guess you'd say. Is that normal for a Lederhosen?

it sports FORWARD to something new ...

it REVERTS back to what it was from ...

its not a reversion.. so all that is left.. is to call it a sport ...

i THINK i was told.. that you cant have 3 colors in a hosta [since there are only two color layers] ... so it will probably revert back.. or disappear next spring ...

Lederhosen as i recall.. is fragrant .. so plantiginea.. so subject to weirdness due to cold temps.. if such in the deep south ...
