HYB: 201 Homework -- White Ground

Continuing with observations of
seedlings from SOSTENIQUE X

First, the blues and violets....

COPE GOODWIN [described
previously] was selected as the =

best of the blue bitones with
signals.  The runnerup had an
almost identical flower -- except
that its standards even paler blue.
Plant performance was the
deciding factor.

The other one in contention had
slightly darker standards, somewhat
lighter falls, and a stippled signal
instead of a solid one.  Again, it =

came down to performance.  Had its
plant been markedly superior to that
of COPE GOODWIN, I would have
introduced it instead.  But the plants
were comparable, the flowers a bit
too much alike to name both of them,
and I preferred the one with more
contrast.  =

The most spectacular bloomed out
and therefore didn't even rate a =

seedling number.  It was pure white
except for a sky blue rim on the falls, =

a small sky blue signal, and yellow
beard.  A similar pattern showed up
later in blue-violet but the markings
were not as clean and the plant didn't
rate introduction.

Homework:  Their blue patterns differ
but, as I indicated in the subject line, =

these seedlings have very something
important in common -- no visible
yellow except in the beard.  Which of
your predictions are confirmed by =

this?  What, if anything, does it add
to your model?

More to come...
