Re: HYB: More pink

Sharon McAllister asked <How deeply do we want to go into this?>

However deep it gets - even if most of us barely can figure out what
we're talking about, may as well start somewhere.  However, keep in mind
that we aren't always able to figure out what some of the 'obvious'
parts are (e.g., like what colors the pigments are <g>)

Fred, what color are the diploids with a double dose of tangerine
factor?  Yellow?  White? Lavender?

Fred Kerr said:
< when the tangerine factor is present in two doses in diploids, the
plants are not pink. >

So, is the bottom line from all this that when tangerine factor is
involved, you can't <always> be sure what you will get in the offspring,
even when you think you know the ancestry?  Seems like that
<occasionally> turns out to be the case with amoena and plicata patterns
