Griff - - you are so right!!! LOL  I can't wait until next year to see what it does. 
I'm tempted to self cross it, to see if it brings out some of Daughter of Stars luminata traits in it and maybe better form too.

One reason I go backwards (on some crosses) before I go forward is because if I ONLY use the new that is already introduced -- - then most of the time I'll only be reproducing what is already introduced.  Often - what we see introduced is just more of the same.  I'm not saying that some really "new and striking" patterns are developing - there are. I'm only saying that I'd like to tap into some of the hidden past as well.
Now will I lose what I've found - by taking these forward?????........time will tell.
This cross is Daughter of Stars x (old form looking) Rust seedling (Vanity x Chief Hematite) I best describe this as the falls being an Olive Green blending to a purple center splash in the center of the falls.
Feel free to tell me what you think.
