Indeed, that much colour.

Yellow is suppose to be a dominant gene. Yellow on hafts doesn't count.
A lot of non-yellow cultivars have some yellow on haft areas. Yellow
being restricted to rim is a recessive. So in a cross of a non-yellow X
RAR you would expect at leas half of seedlings to have yellow (or pink
if genetics are right.)

So we have something strange going on with cartenoid pigment here

Thanks Chuck.

Interesting range of stuff. Especially 396-A-CC - rims, streaks,

speckles & multiple shades of purple pigment. Was there really that

much range of color in real life, or is that a distortion in the photo.

You say no yellow rims, but isn't that yellow on the shoulders of some

of them?
