The Alps Mutation Continued

Back in August I posted an image of a  bloom from a sucker that formed on “The Alps”.  As you know the foliage on The Alps is dark green. The sucker was medium to light green so I suspected the blooms would be different. The plant bloomed a nice all white double that looked or rather reminded me of a daffodil.  As A reminder or if you had not seen that blog here is the LINK. It was the only bloom and the plant was small. After a little time it re-bloomed. The outcome is below.

Sport of The Alps
The next step I will take is to try and propagate another plant from a leaf of this plant.  If  in fact I can get an identical plant and bloom then we can say with certainty the sport has totally lost the second genetic influence that made it’s parent a chimera.
