        It is amazing when you grow enough plants to watch for mutations.
  A classic example is hosta, where there are a small number of
green species.  We now have over 4,000 named cultivars.  Only a tiny
fraction are seedlings and the rest are due to mutations.  There are now
groups of plant nerds that go on sport-fishing expeditions to nurseries and
they aren't looking for fish.


I am one of those sport fishermen. i bless the unstable, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
