The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...presents the unusual case of the mother plant of a
sport being named after the sport. We originally identified
'Midwest Magic' as a sport out of a plant that had been sent to
us as 'Zounds', but was not. Once we realized the mistake, we
named this gold-leaved plant 'Prairie Glow'."
