RE: Cult: hafts

Mike, Harold, anyone -
I was wondering if you would mind clarifying this issue for me.  Why are haft marks so undesirable, even 'detrimental', when hybridizing?  Is it that most folks think they don't look good (and therefore I must be all alone, or at least in a minority, in thinking that they look kinda cool on some flowers - interesting in the way that broken color patterns are), or are there some other specific reasons why they shouldn't be there?

My first impression was doubt about the haft marks being detrimental. So I checked out the white with yellow haft marks. Agreed that the yellow haft marks were complimentary. Went back to first seedling and after a little more study agreed with the compost decision.

Now this seedling has some haft marks even on the standards and style arms.   Good compost!!!
