2016 4/13/16 1d Dixie Chickadee
7/5/17 Seperated out From Dizie Chickadee
2017 4/21/17 1d 8/6/17 Persists to being Emerald City Chick. Plant will be
rejoined with the others.
This hosta is not recorded anywhere else but here. The leaves look similar to Emerald City Chick, but have a singular line down the leaf that is the same color found on Dixie Chickadee but is irregularly placed on the leaf.
Presumeing that the plant becomes stable the provisional name of Northern Crow is given. This name comes from the suggested reference of what a Dixie Chickadee could mean: A Confederate Spy found on Union Territory. The inverse is applied here: A Union Spy found on Confederate Territory.
The connotation of these references is intended to give honer for those who risked and gave their lives during the American Civil War; while the application of these contemporary assigned phrases (had they been really been used during the time period) would have certainly have been exceptionally negative.
Single division found among Dixie Chickadee. Seven leaves total. Five are striped, two are solid.
