I know we have some scientific experts here in our ranks. There’s a very specific word/term I am looking for regarding an unexpected change in leaf shape.
This came up years ago when we had garlic chives in our garden. We had seen one leaf that grew out curly instead of straight. I will be honest, I don’t remember if the whole plant’s leaves were curly/spiral-shaped or wether it had been just a leaf. I somewhat remember it as a genetic mutation, but I could be wrong about that.
We managed to look it up then, but trying to find the same word/term again, we have been unsuccessful.
I am turning to our friendly Chrono community for advice, because I would rather ask here than almost anywhere else. We scoured the internet trying to replicate our searches from years ago, but to no avail.
I am sitting in bed typing on my phone, so pardon me for not elaborating further. The closest plants that I can come up with are spiral grass, some with thin, long, yet flat leaves that are curled up. But this type of curling in spiral grass(es) is expected. I am looking for the word/term describing that unexpected phenomenon.
I am going to bed, but I will thank you in advance for your thoughts and insights. Maybe someone will have an answer by the time I get up!
