I have had a number of sports here that I have seperated off from
mother plant and saved for awhile. I currently have about four, but
have had many more that are no longer here. A solid red from Apache
Carpet ( red spot on yellow), an ordinary plicata of Batik, and one of
Alpha Gnu. A solid black from Batik, a colour darkening of Fuzzy Face,
a luminata-plicata of Rodeo Clown, and a sport of a seedling that had
purple leaf base when original seedling didn't have purple leaf base.
A few others, but can't remember details right now.

At the same time, lets be honest about how many times this really
happens.? Anyone know the count?? I've heard it's less than 50, but I
can only think of two, the one from Beverly Sills and the one from
Maybe there would be more if people cut them lose so they didn't revert
back.? I don't recall ever seeing one happen in my garden, and I've
grown thousands over the years.?
There are sports that aren't a change of color, but I'm not sure I've
en one.? Anyone know of an example??
