HYB: 201 Homework -- Complex Patterns

Finishing the seedling descriptions
with a few really complex ones.  In each
case, the ground is essentially a yellow
amoena, but the yellow flush on the
standards is much like that of the ivory =

ground pattern. =

Previously described under the
introductions post.
This seems to combine the =

ivory-ground pattern with a soft
yellow amoena and soft-blue
bitone.  The mixture of pigments
yields pearl-grey standards, and
apricot falls washed with plum.
[Don't forget that nice big oxblood

Previously described under the
introductions post.  =

Ground appears to be a soft
yellow amoena, overlay a soft
blue-violet bitone EXCEPT for
an area around the beard where
white ground shows through the

S.  Pinkish ivory, with yellowed ivory
flush extending up the midrib.
Style arms golden yellow.
F. Apricot with blush of violet and small
stippled violet signal.
One of my favorite flowers -- just wish
the plant had been stronger.


Now that you've seen how the flavone,
carotene & anthocyanin pigment patterns
can interact in a single flower, let your
imagination run wild.  What other complex
patterns can you envision?

End of seedling observations....
