Two Heads Are Better Than One:

Anybody else have plants that split into two and make offsets? My 'Killer' and NoID cf. 'Jungle Fires'. Only these two varieties have split heads in my garden. That pseudo-'Jungle Fires' NoID is about to go minty green and lose most of the red. I have never seen this color change and two heads in a plant until last year. I put every freaky offset in a growing cell.

What do we call this? Schizo- + another word? Split crown? Split head? Two-heads? Not polycephaly, that is more than two heads.

Ann Marie,

It's just "very short stolons". Sometimes you get a bunch embedded along the periphery, sometimes in the center, where it's generally just a couple rosettes.

'Jungle Shadows' does do this and some of the seedlings from it do it too. Generally there are multiple good rosettes the next season from this odd occurrence.

Kevin.

I have several doing the same thing this year. Persephone did it last year and is absolutely huge this year. I just left it. I think both rosettes are going to bloom.

Oh cool. I been looking for that cultivar! She is from my favorite story about the seasons. Thanks for sharing that yours did this thing. Both of the two heads on my 'Killer' mother are also getting ready to bloom.

AnnMarie, I do have a couple of 'Persephone' yearlings looking for a new home. Smiling
I really wanted to bring the huge double rosette to the new place, but sadly it just would take up a lot of real estate that I don't have at in Oregon City. It makes beautiful rosettes of medium to large size, until a rosette decides to bloom, then it becomes huge. I have offsets out in the new bed.

I would love to home 'Persephone'! Let's figure something out.

So, this morning, one of my two-headed plants of 'Killer' has a third one on the way, maybe. I will photo later, rainy.


I think this is why I got into heuffelii very much this year. Thinking

Three heads:
