A sport of Loyalist that has grown ok in a fair amount of shade and now seems to be even happier in dappled shade under the oaks.

And here is a green sport of Clifford's Comet, seperated this off in 2008. It is much bigger and has a very attractive form - upright held leaves with pointy tip and sort of cupped.

Thanks for looking. There are 63 sports out of Francee's family - Loyalist, Patriot, Minuteman, Pathfinder, Fire and Ice, Fireworks, and Revolution are some of the most familiar - please add your pics from this family.

That's all. And I like Minuteman better. The margin is staying in good shape so far.
