<< Exactly how do you more experienced collectors define "streaked?"  Is Great
 Expectations streaked? Is Striptease streaked? If the answer is yes, does
 that mean you don't want any such in your garden? Why?
 Streaked, in my opinion, means that the plant has all sorts of funny and 
different colorations---it is not a solid colour, nor is it variegated, i.e., 
has a defined center and a different colored margin. 'Dorothy Benedict' is 
"streaked." Great Expectations is not. Neither is 'Striptease'.
They are unstable---if you want to breed--get the streakies.
