It certainly can and has happened with tetraploids, and several of 
these sports have ben registered.

White Witch is a regular plicata sport of Batik.

Ther was also a white sport of Beverly Sills registered,

Subject: Re: Dumping irises!( was Can Someone explain this?)

That is a great story.  I don't think that occurred here, but still an
interesting story.  I spoke to a local iris farm about this iris 
anomaly and
he gave me an interesting explanation.  He said that there are 
with diploid iris when the chromosomes falter and it can actually throw 
unusual rhizome increase that is different from the mother rhizome.  He
explained to me that this can't occur with tetraploids, because the
chromosome makeup does not support it.  Who knows.   But I plan on 
this rhizome loose in the fall and planting it independently to see what
occurs next year! :)  Have a great night
