Re: HYB: Charting for Latent Traits

<< Sharon, what do you mean by "TBs with tangerine pink ground"?  Would that 
be expressed as coral as on Beverly Sills?

Yes -- coral, flamingo and tangerine pink are all shades produced by 

I used the more general term to include not only a pink self, such as BEVERLY 
SILLS, but also halo patterns like HALO IN PINK.  Plus plicatas with violet 
stitching on pink ground and bicolors with pink standards and violet falls 
and complex patterns like SOSTENIQUE.  

Anything in which the tangerine pink has actually expressed itself, although 
the violet-on-pink patterns do provide a bit of an edge.  Pink selfs can be 
pink by virtue of the TB anthocyanin inhibitor, but the patterns show up only 
when it is absent.  Because that inhibitor doesn't affect the aril pathways 
it can't suppress the purples from the aril side of the family.  

A cross to a pink self may thus produce seedlings in which there is so much 
dark pigment from the aril side that the pink is obscured -- which may be 
impressive and fully worthy of introduction without providing any real 
insight to its potential for pink.
