There is a mutation of KALEIDOSCOPE that originated in
the garden of Rex and Alta Brown in the 1960's and was
registered a BROWN'S MUTANT by Clarence Mahan in 1993.
The distinction from the original KALEIDOSCOPE is that
BM has basically the pattern of a variegata-plicata
instead of the random streaking and splashing of color
found in the former.

For me BM is a more consistent performer than
KALEISOSCOPE, but by far the best grower of all the
HONORABILE variants is JOSEPH'S COAT, which even
outdoes the original.
