> Ben I have no intention of getting into a protracted discussino on this one.  You have veried my statment.  I said that a "reverting " (to all green) of a hycanthina "sport" let's say Arctic Rim, will be Hycanthina!  Same for Fortunei!  There is such a thing as becoming so scientific about the analsis of this that your thinking looses all pratical application.  We see in many plants slight variations within a maned cultivar.  The plant world allows for these samll variables for a good reason.  THEY ARE NOT IMPORTANT!  I really don't care if some tiny differences can be speculated on, you are in almost all cases specualting, and most dont need any more lookalikes to deal with, that someone says are (in theory) "perhaps" slightly different!  I have lived with this notion (promoted by several folks) for years, and yet there remains no actual case proof , that I am aware of.  Give me some proven cases.  While you are at it, Explain why I need to worry about why there are so ma!
 small differences , even in a given "non reverted" cultivar.  The fact is for most of us it really is not important.
