Identification: Some times it comes down to counting
veins. I'll pass on a 'for instance.' A couple of reselect sibs
(from the Jesse's Song X Earl Of Essex) looked so much alike that I questioned
the identity of one. I was afraid one was simply a stray eye from the
other. Anyway I broke off a fall from each and counted veins and checked
vein patterns. They were different!
Both would have been trashed eventually but one chose to put up a fall
stalk! And it has that clear look from across the garden. Maybe it
will join the compost pile THIS fall.
