|One of my Veronica Royal Candles is going batty! It is like a whole different plant has grown up through and around Royal Candles. The leaves are slightly different, plain edged insteaf of saw toothed. And the blooms are short squat and a different color. I like it. But not necesarily together. |
Would this be considered a sport?

|It's not a sport, it's an entirely different species, Selfheal (Prunella vulgaris)|
Self-heal (Prunella vulgaris)
There was a thread about it just the other day in the Plant ID forum.

|Wow! I wonder how the heck it magically appeared in my Veronica!|
I guess I will have to dig it all up and try to separate them.

|Selfheal is a fairly agressive plant, it might show up just about anywhere if the conditions are to its liking.|

|I will swifty dispatch it!|

|All gone! And I managed to keep my Veronica mostly intact.|
