That is a neat one I haven't come across before. It really seems to be coming along nicely, Ed, and you have some great pictures showing the color changes!

Thanks Chris, it's hard to catch them at the right moment. I think photo number 4, the real dark centered one, is the leftmost leaf in the first picture when they just emerge.

I hadn't noticed the "white lightning" before. I'll have to add it to my collection of that type.

I was cleaning out one of the gardens behind my house today. It has many Gold Standard sports.

This one is always fun to watch. I wonder how does the plant decide what leaf-color variations it will put up in a season. I don't think I have seen the light center dark edge variation before - it's on two of the sprouts.
Off to the right is one of my Gold Standard sports Standard's Bands - it's overwhelming Collector's Banner so I will need to "trim" some hunks off of it..
