Do either of the parents have a bicolor effect with the
darker fall color only on the upper
The pod parent of this one was a very dark seedling, near black . . .
from (Silverado x Latin Lady) x Theme Master. (I think the <tall>
pod parent on this seedling matched your description . . . yet again,
I discarded it when I moved.) TM brings into play Autumn Encore,
Roman Lover, Feed Back (2), Orbiter & Violet Classic. Unfortunately, I
didn't bring the pod parent with me, but memory doesn't indicate an
overlay. Theme Master is a bitone with narrow rim.
Now the pollen parent was Tara's Choice. Here we have Inferno, Her
Royal Highness (Well Endowed & V. Miracle), & Feed Back (again).
The darker rim can easily come from TC. There's a hint of
plicata mixed in.
I'll be anxious to see this one (1701-1RE) bloom again because the photo
indicates a partial narrow rim, but it could be weather damage. Too long
in the bud.
Of course, I have to remind myself that it could be one of those "1st"
