I find that the beard has a good story to tell. The beards on all of
these are tangerine red, thus all are tttt plants. The white and the
lavender with red beards are tangerine plants (tttt) with the
repression of the cartenoid pigments (alpha-carotene, beta carotene,
lycopene etc) by four sets of the gene that repress carotene. It still
expresses in the beard even if not on petals. Ususlly crossing one of
these with a catenoid expressed plant will produce all cartenoid
plants if none of this gene or as few one half if the cartenoid
plant has three of the repress cartenoid gene. a white x white or x
lavender (or blue) with red beard will have all seedlings with red
beard but no carenoid pigment in the flowers petals
For a dark top with tangerine beard use Fogbound or one of its children.
