Hi Sports Fans,
         The picture attached here was sent to hostapix by Pat Mora. It shows a division of 'Embroidery' in which a green center is appearing inside the whitish center, which is something I've only seen before in 'Royal Tiara'. Given that we understand Hosta to have only two layers, how can we explain this? Has a third layer come into existance through mutation? Or is this new tissue some L1 that has become trapped inside the L2? This is one of the strangest things hostas do. The appearance of a third color in a hosta leaf is not uncommon, but this usually occurs as streaking or patches of another color. What does it tell us that it apparently can form a stable-appearing pattern?
