dark petioles

Postby redcrx » Oct 21, 2014 11:13 am

I went out this morning to get some photos and find a Judy Rocco that I knew was growing in a trough but I couldn't find it on my garden map. I found it and then got to looking at Purple Heart and noted how dark the scape and seed pods were. I then decided to get some photos of its petiole and compare it to other dark petioles. I grabbed the darkest one I have - a seeding from Art Wrede.

I went and grabbed a couple of others.

I have a One Man's Treasure that at one time had the darkest petioles I had ever seen but its been getting less dark over the years. I even posted it back in 2012

While getting OMT, I noticed how dark Designer Genes is so I grabbed that also. Those petioles were added to the right of the other. Designer Genes is almost identical to the Miss Angie seedling.

Here is the back base of the petiole.

Here is the inside base of the petiole.

Then I found two more of interest to me - Almost and Harry van de Laar.
They were added to the right.

(Just a side note - the "Green Sparkler" mentioned here is my own all green sport of Sparkle and not the TC form found and registered by Mark Zilis. I doubt there is much difference between them.)

I went out today looking for a few more and grabbed Red Dragon then Chopsticks and Cinnamon Sticks. Next I found Plum Creek. I remembered that I had Red Sox and Stephen King around but Stephen King was already down :?: . I took a Miss Ruby and a seedling called #102.
