white lime sport
« on: August 12, 2014, 06:39:56 PM »
Last Friday I found a lime tree, Tilia sp., that had several white stemmed white leaved twigs
Antrim, Northern Ireland Z8

When the swifts arrive empty the green house

They really are whiter than white, eh?  The tiny green parts look "pixelated"  ;)

Attached to the parent tree such sprigs might survive a while but you couldn't root cuttings, could you, because they couldn't photosynthesize  ?
