Re: HYB: deepening pink

Who knows <g> - OVATION is new this year, and MAGHAREE went to heaven
soon after arrival.  Never saw either one in person.  From the pictures,
OVATION looks very pink to my eye.  I guess I got a bit confused from
some earlier posts that said something about 'dark' pinks.  From the
post, I got the impression they were talking about pinks that were
'dark' because they had a lot of purple pigment in them?

Which got me thinking about pigments again - I think we went over this
once before but I'm a bit fuzzy on the subject.  <Presence or absence>
of pink/yellow is genetically controlled as is supression of blue.  Is
the <amount> of  pigment a simple dominant/recessive thing and is it
linked to the colors?  In other words, do you have to cross two deep
pinks to always get deep pinks?  Or could you get a deep pink by
crossing cultivars with a lot of some other pigment but with light
pink/yellow in the background?  I have a vague memory that the different
pigments don't even occur in the same part of the cells, in which case
'deepness' of one color shouldn't have any effect on another, except
thru combination of the two.

What about optical effects?  Do they have anything to do with deepness
of color?

Or are these more of my interminable unanswerable questions (which I
haven't had a lot of lately - I must have become a know it all <g>)?

It is COLD here!
