blue pollen, if that's any help to you.
I do not know what the relationship is, if any, between pollen color and color on style arms -- but when I've traced the pedigrees of my seedlings that have green, turquoise, or blue green markings on the style and creamy pollen I've almost always found ancestors with blue or green pollen.  So many arilbreds trace back to unknowns in just a few generations, that for some the question is simply unanswerable.
