When I checked the photo that I sent I realized that I had sent the 
wrong one, so I have posted a correction with the correct photo. The 
one sent originaly is not a luminata.

Luminata is a specific type of plicata that is chacterized by having 
the violet (anthocyanin) distributed in the center of the petals and 
mostly between the veins rather then in the veins as is normally seen 
in plicatas (kind of the photographic reverse of the normal plicata). 
The style arms, beard and hafts of the flower have no anthocyanin and 
show the ground colour of the flower, white in this case. The ground 
colour can be yellow or pink. There can be some violet on the 
stigmatic lip (part of the style arm). The violet is usually marbled 
or washed, allthough at times this can be seen only by close
