Re: Hosta Wheel

Ray W,

The instructions prepared( there are two versions so far) indicate that
the color wheel, when used as a tool to identify color, can show colors
thru the season due to environmental factors as well as the genetic
changes due to viridescence, lutescence and albescence characteristics.
You do this by observing the color changes carefully and making note in
code forms in your garden notebook. An imaginary dot on a correct color
wheel pie-shaped segment represents two colors if the hosta happens to
be variegated. Another dot made a month later in the same sector or in
another sector,  represents color changes which may have occurred. Draw
an imaginary line between the two dots, and that represents data on four
different color changes that may occur with the given time period. Of
course you wouldn't want to mark up your color wheel with lines and
dots. You make a note of these changes in your notebook using codes to
represent the colors involved.

Is this a clear diescription of how it works to gather data?
