Mike--looking at the pedigree and description of
Come To Me it appears it may be a glaciata/yellow amoena, or something quite
close to it. Is that possible?
Even if not, there's plenty of plicata ancestry
behind Come to Me. The seedling (a beauty, by the way--I like the looks of
it very much!) sure does look like a bicolor/zonal or a darned close approach to
Chapman speculates that a zonal is lu-lu-lu-lu or
lu-lu-lu-la--chopping off the "p" on all the plicata alleles. I don't know what
the genetic makeup of Fashion Designer is--if it is a dominant "white" (I-white)
blocking the _expression_ of whatever anthocyanin pattern is present, almost
anything could be true. Your seedling, if it is a zonal, and it sure does
look like one, indicates that so is Fashion Designer underneath the dominant
A lot of t-beardeds carry plicata alleles.
They have been cropping up in pink crosses right from the beginning of
the Hall line pinks.
One might note that one of the key ancestors of the
Loomis seedlings behind SEASHELL was a plicata.
