I dont see anything undesirable about the virus effects.
This type of virus rarely kills a plant unless its incredibly sick already.
The virus will also only show in times of stress, soooo
Which have it and which dont?
I think it nothing of consequence, Interesting effects on the flowers but no worries in my book.
Interesting slideshow, thanks ;)
I ordered 4 new plants this spring. One was supposed to be a grafted lucky lucky white. It is pink and to me it looks like the pictures here, blotchy flowers and leaves. It isn't really showing any other signs and has bloomed all year and still has some flowers now. It sits adjacent to the other plants and now I am worried. So far the flowers seem normal other than the blotchiness. I do think, though am not sure, they didn't look quite like that when they first started blooming this spring.
if you r that concerned then its way too late as bugs have the primary responsibility of spreading it as they suck on plant to plant.
Dont chuck em out, send them tome, I dont mind the virus. Ive dealt with it for years on other plants and have yet to have it spread except by injecting infected juices into another plant intentionally, yes it worked and the results were unbelievable. Noone believed the flowers to be the species we claimed.
Well the grafted plant that is infected has bloomed all season. My other new ones are seedlings and didnt bloom but put on a lot of growth. My old plant blooms once for a few weeks and then not at all. If they are infected guess I will find out soon enough. The flowers have been pretty but for me its all about the odd shapes of the caudex. A few pics but not sure you can see what I do in person.
