oh... I wish I had a mouseketeer sport... Topo Gigio!

and seriously, Chris... I think Brotherly Love is a great name. It has geographic connotations, would appeal to those with religious hosta them beds, as well as the secular peace-and-love folks, much better name for a gift to siblings than B Stephan... there is a lot of marketing potential there! I have several friends who would want it just for the name...

This is a seedling from Jewel of the Nile, which had a few yellow streaks in years past. I am loving the new sport from the seedling with the yellow center. One eye is all the same. Another eye has a few streaks, the other eyes are solid green.

That yellow-centred sport will be spectacular if you can stabilize it. :D

I'd go with Brotherly Love & Dancing Mouse Ears.

Eye of the Tiger is a cool name, BUT I was so sick of that song from the Rocky movie that I'd never buy anything with that name. :wink:

That should be enough for now!

How about Scalloped Corn, or Corn Soufle?

Chris,

I was going down a (flamenco) mouse hole, and rediscovered this post. What's the status of "Brotherly Love"? I might have some use for it in a few years. ;-)

This is what I had been looking for to post sports.
I probably posted these photos before.

I'm still curious what happened with the Brother Stefan sport. Brotherly Love, would, of course, have made a great choice for our 2018 convention plant. Alas.
(Ed, it seemed this post was all about Hallson's sports.)

Yes, it seemed that but the title was "Got Sports?" etc. I assumed it was for anybody but no one used it. And Chris didn't update it so I poked it.

I use the "weedling" page for a lot of stuff that pop-up in my gardens - I use the AHS Facebook page but to me it's too disorganized. I use the index here to add to update info of particular plants - I like adding flower shots. ( I even think about adding pods and anther colors but that's TMI and hard the photograph.) If I had access to the HL I'd post there too.

I wanted a single location to put sports. Or they could be appended to the parent but then they would get lost.
