Thank you for the explanation, Sharon.  I’m at an age where I should know a lot of things that I don’t, but I’m still learning.  Unfortunately, I see no good characteristics in that blue


Most pinks show that color because they have the inhibitor that blocks expression of the red-violet to blue-violet pigments.  It takes only one dose.  So when two pinks are crossed, the inhibitor may or may not be passed along to a given seedling.  If your two-tone blue were otherwise outstanding -- think substance, form, bud count, growth habits, etc. -- it could be a valuable parent in your quest for pinks.  All it would take is pairing it with a good pink that does carry the inhibitor.
