Now that is a very interesting chimera! I love those kind of blooms!

Here's the best chimera I have ever seen. On this one half the bloom is the normal blue-white and the other is pure blue. One other bloom on the same stem has half of one fall and std blue.
Song of Norway is basically a blue with one or more copies of a dominant white gene which supresses the full expression of the blue. However very rarely, in part of a bloom or stem this gene fails to work allowing the underlying colour to be seen. This is called a chimera.
