I guess since this my seedling I'll answer with my opinion.  I don't find the haft makings offensive or bad if they don't take away from the overall appearence of the flower.  If they are blended or have a transitioning effect as a hybridizer I don't mind them at all.  Its when there is a distinctive stop and go effect I would find it objectionable.  My seedling 24L1 is border line in my opinion.  It could go either way.  The flower is bold enough the haft marking kind of take a back seat to the rest of its beauty.   I have several seedlings where I am working on extending the haft marking where they become part of the overall appearance.  Below is one example.  Just my opinion.

Are Haft markings always considered bad?
