Hello Bill,

Nope.  Looked like dead plant tissue with no redeeming quality.  I 
did think it interesting.  It's a trait I think can be attractive.  
All the sibling seedlings in theis color range had the edge, but 
none of the yellows, pinks, tans or pale orange ones had it.  As a 
trait, it would seem to be something that is out there recently.  
Looking at Sandy's postings from the convention all the following 
seem to display something similar to this kind of edging - only they 
all looked good!

LET'S BE FRIENDS (Christopherson '02)
VAPOR (Ghio '02)
VOODOO CHILD (Schreiners '02)
CAJUN COOKING (Rogers '00)
SPIRIT WORLD (Keppel '92)
DUDE (KEPPEL '02) - an IB

WIDDERSHINS might work pretty well any of these.  The number of 
hybridizers cover a pretty good number.  My problem with working 
with what this sibling shows is that I'm trying to work with 
arilbreds and don't want to get sidetracked doing too many TB 
crosses.  Plus, this group is not especially willing to set pods and 
even less willing to germinate the seeds when I do get a pod.  This 
group has proven to be reliable with bloom and strong growers, so 
I've tried to work with them.  Compared to what I grow, they're good
