Re:HYB: Immortality, pink & orchid?

The pigment giving lilac or orchid colors is the same as that giving "blue" or
any other variation of violet and is inherited completely independently from
both yellow pigments and the tangerine-converter that diverts the pigment
synthesis from yellow to (pale) red.  Most pinks are genetically (a) dominant
whites, where the violet is inhibited and is present as a transparent pigment
"leucoanthocyanin;" OR recessive whites where the "B" violanin pigment factor
is absent, but this is rather rare, OR glaciatas;  and (b) light yellows with
the gene "Y;" and (c) four-plex (four times present) gene "t."  All of these
must be present to produce "pink."

These are all inherited at random more or less and completely independent from
each other.

Celebration Song types are dominant blues (expressed as violet, not blue), and
"Is" dominant partial whites of the Progenitor/Whole Cloth genetic type, and
light yellows, and have also the "t" converter present four times.  In
seedlings from these genetic types (phenotypes) the factors are tossed into
the seedling pot as if they are competely separate ingredients, which they
