I have an Abracadabra and I see it described as a Sport.

What exactly is a Sport?

Thanks.

It is a naturally occuring mutation, Vincent. Plants occasionally send out a single branch that differs from the rest of the plant. If this has sufficient merit, it is used to propagate more plants (from cuttings)which will have this same mutation.
