re: "Rimmed" pattern

Kathy asked:

>What's wrong with 'rimmed'?  Easily understandable. 

I don't think that there's anything wrong with "rimmed", if you're describing
only the appearance of the flower, not the genetics.  Just don't use it to a
hybridizer who CARES whether the rim color is from a halo pattern, plicata
markings so intense as to appear solid, or the absence of pigment.   

Usually, using a precise techical term IS the simplest, most effective means of
communicating a concept.
