Lost all my details, covid came knocking, early retirement and I forgot about my membership of this site! Glad to be back to enjoy our gardens.

This has me stunned. The original plant flower behind has sent up a flower stem that has the most amazing striped flower. Both are on the one branch but this one must be a sport. Has anyone seen this happen with carnations?

Thank you Ange and Jane and John for your detailed response. @pelly @anges @ukjohnny I have never seen this before and notice there are 3 buds to open on the same stem so it will be interesting to see if they are the same. At the bottom of the stem there are 3 little non flowering shoots so I will try to take cuttings when they are larger. I do not know the name of the original plant and all other flowers are a solid colour. I even believe the scent is stronger on this stripped one.
