I have mentioned this before, but fits here.  The blooms on Eagles Nest, are also much altered from S & S.  Not unexpected, as they are borne from the deep green center.  They are on short stout scapes ( about 12 to 14 inches tall, and have clusters of waxy near white blooms.  I find them quite attractive.  They have not ( so far) made any pods so no seed.

A good example is Hosta Eagles Nest, a sport of Sum and Substance.  The two
cell layers differ from one another in growth and color.  Plants from the
center of the leaf are dark green, much thicker, more shiny than S & S, and
grow much more slowly.  Plants from the edge of the leaf are Sum and
Substance.  Clearly the center of the leaf of Eagles Nest has some kind of
genetic alteration, possibly it is to a polyploid.
