Phew, managed to fit that in the title somehow. I'm curious whether by either splitting the rhizome or taking a leaf pulling you can get a new plant that will display the clone's feature for a few years again and so on. The only way I can think of where this isn't true would be if it was only the case with tissue culture, that is if only plants from tissue cultures were capable of displaying the trait

In my opinion, if the plant doesn't have stable traits then it shouldn't be a cultivar, otherwise, how can you positively identify it?
Taking a leaf-pulling or rhizome division will give you a genetically identical replica of the parent plant, so will exhibit exactly the same traits.
