While the apearance of veining basically rules out a plant being a
glaciata, the lack of them does not mean it is a glaciata. There are
lots of very clean non-anthocyanin flowers, that are not glaciatas. Of
course the best test is to use it in a cross with a known glaciata or
plicata. With no known plicatas in either Harvest of Memories or
Treasured, or no plicatas in the cross, then it being a glaciata is
very unlikely.

One possible test is to pull off a fall, and look at the base where it
joined the rest of the flower. This is were some veining can be hidden
indicationg a small amount of veining. Again this is an exclusion tesst
(eliminating it as a glaciata) not an inclusion test. So lact of
anthocyanin here means you can proceed to the next test, the test
cross. But, without any plicata in cross it came from, a very unlikely

glaciata (I could

not see indication anywhere last year of dark veins), then HoM must

carry plic, right Chuck? Several more seedlings from this cross

showing color this year, no sign of any being plic so far.

Never enough doses of anthocyanin white to block it completely?

or never say never....
