As I am always looking for ways to improve substance, and flowers, I 
would start with something like a Tardiana.  You could use Halcyon.  The 
resulting seedlings may be larger than Striker, but they will carry some 
of it's genetic chariter.  You could get plants that are streaked and 
have heavy substance, and show a lot of blue.  Those would make fine 
parents for future breeding efforts
