I have several large bee pods that I just noticed. One is on Earl of Rhodes, which I spent so much time trying to identify. I would like to plant some seeds if I can do it without a lot of effort.
As for the chimera, I am not sure if this is the right name, but I have a pale blue/white with blue beards that has only 2 sets of standards and falls, rather than the usual 3. Last year, I believe this same cultivar had blooms with purple and white blooms, kind of half purple and half white on the same bloom. Is there a name for a plant that produces these "sports" frequently, or is it just a coincidence?

Bee pods can be fun; not sure about the other stuff--probably weather related.
