Re: HYB:Deepening Pink

Virtually all tangerine bearded reds came from red x pink breeding. Old 
favorite Lady Friend was one of the first and King's Ruby was another. A 
cross of King's Ruby with Role Model gave a wonderful array of colors from 
ruby red through tannish pinks, but nothing that would suggest a darker pink. 
Deepening pink by crossing to dark yellows has not proven useful to me. 
Although the segregation in the F2 give dark yellows, the pink sibs are not 
especially dark. Crossing to orange or perhaps gold might be a way to go. 
Anyone out there with experience with orange? Just what is it? Yellow plus 
tangerine factor plus ...?
