I not noticed crystalline edges. I've carried a lot of the blooms around (while polinating) and doubt I would have overlooked them, so I'd say not. At least, not in my soil. I've been more interested in going for the ornage/red beards I know are in it's background. Those edges can be tricky.

Betty, does Platinum have crystalline edges like Genteel? I'll have to check them out a bit more.

I grow Platinum which is a white sibling to Genteel. Grows very well here. Lots of stalks. Blooms in the fall here. I've used it in a few crosses but haven't seen any blooms yet.

I posted a photo of a child on 10/14/08. The pod parent was
Come What May X HOM. Well-branched, laced orange with
dependable RE, but miserable form and substance. Truly awful.
I think you'd like what Genteel does. FC here, early enough to
get the job done. Unlike Eternal Bliss, G has never rotted here.
