This is a very nice streaked plant that came out this year.
It looks better and better as it gets bigger.

From what I remember, it's a streaked sport found in TC from 'My Cup of Tea' (Elslager 02), which is a 'Sea Prize' x 'Maekawa' hybrid.

Yes, it is very prolific I hear. The offspring, however, are Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Eggs and Spam. Without the eggs.

It is a My Cup of Tea sport and the ones to come out of TC are just getting around. Should be exciting to see how it does. I must admit that the Spam message has me wondering.
