re: "Rimmed" pattern
>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.
