Re[2]: Streaking and stability (Was: Re: Doc Reath)

More background on the ones I remember seeing in his garden during several
visits, even got some on a video:

Reath # 82 was supposed to be David Reath's version of 'Dorothy Benedict".
He had crossed 'Frances Williams' several times and had some seedlings that
were very streaked, with every leaf coloration different. I think Pete Ruh
and Marge Soules may have some of these  - Klehm had a few too, though they
didn't tissue culture at all.

David had special growing conditions in the Michigan Upper Peninsula, that
allowed the sieboldianas to grow very well. When they were divided and
moved they didn't always respond well.

Is Great
 Expectations streaked? Is Striptease streaked? If the answer is yes,
 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
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.
