This is the latest of my new seedlings coming up. I have never seen one grow like this.
The seeds were from a local cross here in Australia of knightii x old apricot. . Old apricot is the name we call an apricot that has been growing around the eastern states here, for a long time. Knightii is a common one here too.
I planted the seeds in late autumn ( Fall) as I wanted to see how they went through winter in my greenhouse.
All the other seeds from other crosses were normal , but this is the only one that grew from this cross.
It has 2 tiny heads as you can see. I have never seen anything like this one and nor has anyone in our brug group.
It has a few normal green leaves but the new ones grew this way. I see no evidence of any swelling or lumps etc , just the curling over of the colored leaves. The plant seems healthy otherwise.
I wondered if anyone has ever seen this type of growth on any seedling before.
