HYB:CULT:TRADE: Crystal Dawn and color lines


Your question of multi-generation breeding within a particular color applies
to several lines.  Schreiner blues, for example, are *many* generations of
breeding tightly within a line with a strong foundation quite a few
generations back.

The pink line that begins with David Hall, added to by Fay and Moldovan with
the inclusions of some whites, primarily Snow Flurry and New Snow, then
continued by Nathan Rudolph, then further continued with very little
outcrossing (even so, outcrossing to closely related lines such as Tell
Muhlestein's) by Gatty, Corlew and Ghio, and now continued after Joe Gatty's
death by Keith Keppel is a major example of what you are looking for.
Happenstance, Vienna Waltz and Kitty Kay from Keppel are premium examples.
Incidentally, Keppel's Open Seas and Sea Power are pure Schreiner-line blues

Vernon Woods pinks are from similar breeding to Keppel's and trace to the same

Keppel's pink plicatas have a many-generation interweaving of Gibson-based and
other Sass-based plicata cvs with a few additions from other related lines.
These are not as tightly bred as the pinks and blues mentioned above,
