This one started sporting the first year I had it. It seems now to have stabilized into something, but it's not what 'Gypsy Rose' should look like (and it has one eye that is solid green which I'll remove). I don't know this family well as many are too large for my garden and it was so likely to be infected with HVX for a long time.

I'm wondering if this looks like another recognized member of the family or if it seems completely new.

Mine actually looks a bit more normal now. It may have been mostly early season colour.

My Gypsy Rose looked really sad last year, so I potted it up and stuck it in the ground. Thinking that it would not survive the winter, I ordered a new one and it's looking great! I guess I'll have two of them in my gardens! Your Gypsy Rose looks great Ann. It must be something they do just to keep us on our toes!
