This is a great plant. It is also a very closely related to Greased 
Lightning genetically. Note the dark violet/yellow colour around the 
edge. This is what I refer to as the ring pattern. In this case it is 
not in four dosages so hasn't completely shown its pattern. Extend 
this yellow ring more and you end up with GL. The more dosages of the 
"ring" factor, the more the anthocyanidins are forced into the center. 
The yellow pigment seems to be different then what I normally see and 
I'm still puzzling over it. Move the yellow in this plant more around 
the edges and into the area around the beard and voila, Greased 
Lightning. Troubadours Song is in the background of GL.
