And what is up with Clinton? Look at the strange spots on the leaves. It's not hail damage or insect damage. Actually, there is no damage, just the spots.

Wow Chris, Mars is absolutely gorgeous.
Wonder if that is the way Clinton starts it's color change? I don't have that one so don't know. It is sure interesting. Can you get a close up of it?

I see a lot of different heuff's showing spots like that and have always assumed it was insect damage of some sort. My assumption has been that it is slugs trying to feed, but not being very successful. I've never caught any munchers though we do have a lot of slugs here. They are stealth feeders usually.

Twit I believe your observation to be correct. I went out and took some new photos of some heuffs. There is a difference between normal color change process and color change due to damage.
I do need to go back out now and get a better close up of the spotted color change to see if we can see what is going on.
Passat making normal color change.

Perfection with normal color change and some damage.

Elmo's Fire with a combination of color change, from normal to damage color change.

Chris, can't wait to see a close up of your Clinton. That has a lot of speckling going on. Sure is pretty. : )

Close up (ignore all the dirt and garbage that blew on it today). I ran my fingers over the spots and they're completely smooth.

It will be fun watching what it does Chris. Maybe it is a peculiarity to h. 'Clinton'.
Do you have that one twit? If so has yours ever done the polka dots? I really like them, it's so unusual.

My Clinton died shortly after receiving it. Still think the spots are nurture rather than nature. Sunscald from water drops? Chris, it would be nice to watch and see if the spots change or if new ones develop and how quickly that happens. Let's put on our lab smocks and get to work on the puzzle.

This is a new plant for me this year. Sorry yours didn't make it Twit. Maybe next year it'll be big enough to divide and we can try again. It's located in my semp bed with tons of other ones, but it's the only one that has anything weird like this going on.

Off to find my lab coat. Will try to take pictures at least weekly for a while so we can keep an eye on it. Big Grin

Maybe we should break 'Clinton' off into a thread by itself so we don't lose the info here.

Twit, I had sent it to you this spring. I had ordered one and actually received two.

I think this is about the most overwhelming time of the year, at least for me. Some time this winter I may get caught up. Whistling

Okay now you are making me feel panicky twit.
We still have company, still trying to get caught up on the yard, still have about 100 semps in nursery trays that need planting. Sighhhhh. Sad
