Re: Re: HYB: questions - white dominance

Also, since you metioned rebloom... I have noticed that most Zone 4/5 Fall rebloomers with carotenoids either have anthocyanin or are recessive whites.  There might be one or two out there that are dominant whites, but haven't come across them yet in my limited amount of purchases the past few years.  Just something I hve been  keeping an eye out for in my seedling bed and in new Introductions from hybridizers.  I do have one seedling I think be just that, but needs some work on form and such things.  It's a bright golden yellow.

Bonus Lite and Lunar Whitewash are ones I have been wondering about.  I can barely get LW to grow and BL I haven't purchsed.
