As I was looking up Apple
Court in Mark Zilis' book, I read that it's a sport of 'Ani Machi' (Ani Machi
Giboshi) ('Geisha') and that...
"Ani Machi Giboshi can be
found in many Japanese collections and is the same plant that has been sold
as 'Geisha'. It is not, however, the plant that Kevin Vaughn registered
under this name in 1983. Whatever the history, it grows into an
impressive, medium-sized mound of center-variegated foliage that has ornamental
interest even as the center color changes to green.""
Then I looked up Geisha in
the index and found:
'Geisha' ( = H. 'Ani
Does this mean that the plant
I got as Geisha through Robyn's Nest is not the same plant that Kevin
registered or that it is the same plant, but it should be called Ani
Machi? Does it mean that Apple Court is a sport of Kevin's Geisha or of
Ani Machi ....or none of the above???
Kevin and Robyn, are you
reading this? Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
