I don't have much, but will contribute what I have.

Vanishing Act X Pure As Gold from the 2006 crop.  Vanishing Act is plicata and can breed plicata when crossed by plicata.  I've used it a lot due to height and branching.  This cross produced a lot of seedlings but I only planted twelve.  Approximately 6 bloomed (didn't write it all down) and they were all some shade of dingy yellow to gold.  This cross gave great substance, good form, but no plicatas in this small sample.  There were another 19 seedlings left in the seedling pot, but I've no idea how many survived two years of draught.  I do hope to plant any survivors.

Repost as it didn't seem to go through yesterday.

Indeed one grand parent had plicata. So it would be theoretically
possible that Pure as Gold could have two plicata genes. A search of
offspring of 'Pure As Gold' would suggest that this not the situation.

Infernal fire would seem to have only two plicata genes based on its

So it would appear that 'Pure As Gold' is rra. but this is speculation
given what is most probable in this situation. It would need
supporting data to confirm it.

This would make Infernal fire with three rra genes and a BC
anthocyanin gene. Also two plicata genes.

Again speculation.

I have made myself some notes to test out both possibilities.
