Re: HYB: Odd "plicata" markings

I have third generation crosses involving Crazy For You and I don't believe  
it is a plicata pattern. The pattern will show up the first generation no 
matter  what you cross to the pattern. Being a Berry Blyth variety, using Crazy 
for  You gives a wide variety of colors with and without the pattern. I have had 
 white seedlings show up as well a very nice blue with darker fall lines. The 
 pattern, which I believe Neil has called butterfly, is typically darker 
veins  flowing to the edge of the fall which is generally colored with a wide or 
narrow  band of the same color. Yellow patterns on white are especially common 
as are  red on white. Some crosses show the tangerine factor with pink ground 
colors on  both the standards and the falls.The biggest problem with these 
crosses is that  there are so many interesting seedlings that I select too many!
