Amazing! Why didn't all the flowers on it do
the same thing? What causes this Charisma to take place? Is it
something genetic? Environmental? other?

Summer Camp is a burgundy plicata on a light yellow ground.
I had this charisma of it in the garden a couple of years ago. The area that
has reduced anthocyanin shows yellow plicata type stittching on white ground.
The yellow is stronger in the veins and heavier near the edge of the petals,
in much the same pattern as anthocyanin is distributed in plicatas.
What about red on white plicatas such as Taholah. Harlequin, High Life,
Broadway, Different Design and Spice Lord (as examples)? The red and
brown colour is a combination of yellow and violet. Shouldn't the anthocyanin
and carotene be distributed in the same locations to give us the red.
happens when the anythocyanin is absent in a red on white plicata? Removed by
a Dominant Reduction of Anthocyanin or a Recessive Reduction of
