For some odd reason I can't recall where I obtained that first two divisions from.
I am still not 100% sure if the ones on the loose planters are White Feather. At this point I'm willing to give them the benefit of a doubt. Next spring will be the real test to see ifthey come up correctly. Much of the same discussion goes for the plant on the East Retaining Wall as that one weas left in exchange for approximately 250 stolen hosta spikes in the spring of 2016.

This hosta comes up WHITE and then changes to green. The change occurs shortly after the 5 leaf appears. The veins are supposed to be green over the summer.
Chaos and Distruction
When someone gives you a white feather you better understand why its being given! White Feathers can mean EITHER
1) Honor and the highest respect. or ...
2) Dishonor and disrespect.
Historically these interpretations have come out of military regiments, both North American and European.
The interpretation also comes out the American CivIl War where women, predominately at taverns and bars, would ask a few tactful questions of handsome men and then ambush them by handing them a white feather if they had not enlisted, or were not an officer and adding they were a disgrace to the nation.
