Hi Ann, that's not a sport it's just some late season interesting leaves. Each year one or two plants will do this.

Not much change in this one. I guess it's reached maturity.

Cameo is a strong performer for me. It goes well with Vinca Illumination. Image

The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer God's heart in the garden
Than anywhere on earth

'Cameo' July 3, 2015. I put this one in a large pot along with other members of the family. In so doing, I also got a couple of small divisions from the plant for a sale next spring.
