Great pictures General and Billy.Love to see pics of a great find. Its been years since I have found a five pronger good to know they still exist General! Hope its in a spot where you can leave it and go back year after year to see what it does. Wondering if it will come back up a five every year or will it come up a four prong next year.Hope you can take pics and let us know how it does down the road. What a beautiful plant, congradulations!!
I have transplanted a 5 prong before (2 years ago). I assumed that it would come back up a 4 prong, but the first year is was dormant and this spring it came up as a large 3 prong!!
If you look closely at Billy's picture yo will notice a prong that has 3 leaves on it. That is the \"extra\" prong that isn't supposed to be there. In the picture of my 5 prong you will notice a smaller prong sandwiched in on the left of the picture, this is the extra prong for this plant.
Two of the 3 5-prongs I have found have came from this same spot. It must be the rich, soft soil that is isolated in this particular spot. As I stated before I found two 4-prongs that were even larger than this huge 5-prong.
