We have at least 25 different varieties. I know for certain I have Guacamole planted somewhere, but I have no idea on the rest.

Beautiful garden!

Very difficult to comment when all pictures are in one thread. But I'm sure there is an Undulata Albomarginata and an Undulata there.

@Rose1656 did your 'Key West' sustain some damage as it was emerging? Just asking because of the damage to tips of the older leaves which looks a lot like the sunken tissue you get with HVX except that it's uniform on all the older leaves and doesn't show on the newer ones.

I noticed the points looking pretty wrinkled. I'm going to assume that it's just from me stepping on them when I was doing my spring clean up. I think it would be showing up on the new leaves, too. I'm not trimming it. I'll leave it and see what it looks like next spring. This is the bed that has moles running through it, so I'm always tamping down their runs. But, thanks for pointing it out. I will be watching it next spring.

I'm betting it sustained some damage to that eye and will be fine next year.

I hope so. I do have it spreading in the big bed out in the front yard. I've disposed of 3 that have shown signs of hvx, so far. All 3 were mature plants that have never been moved or divided. I watch the squirrels digging around the plants roots in that bed and wonder if it's possible for them to be spreading the virus?

When did you acquire those plants? If you are like me, you acquired a large number when the HVX epidemic was just beginning and your infected plants likely came that way even if from a quality nursery.
I've had two each from two different nurseries who were both aware of the issue at the time, yet they still slipped through. I was more worried about the one I had for 6 years or so before I realized it was infected. Anyone who acquired plants in those days would have been extremely lucky to have totally avoided HVX, but I think we were sufficiently aware that we didn't spread it further in our yards.

I've had them all for several years, but it is what it is! I'll just keep my eyes open for more infected plants in that bed, but hope for the best.
