Sandy & I have discussed this and we have no good explination of this
result. SP has never shown variagated foliage and there seems to have
been no roundup exposure. I don't have any other seedlings fron SP
showing variagation and none on SP (and I have lots of stock to look at).
Usually the pod parent needs to have the variagation. A natural sport
would only involve one out of the pod, not several such as this.
Sandy- I never asked , or if I did I forgot, how many seedlings do you
have from this cross?
