I just posted a long note on the yellow plicata issue. I hadn't read
this note or Neils note at that time. I looked up Hey Joe and it would
seem to fit the Yellow Plicata definition. I didn't find Pure and
Simple on first look but I suspect it is the solid band, Joyce Terry
pattern. Thus no plicatas in the cross to Charleston unless there are
ALSO some plicata genes in there. The relationship of the JT pattern
to yellow plicata pattern is about the same as the Emma Cook pattern (
narrow band of anthocyanin around falls) to the plicata pattern.
Similar but not the same and under diferent genetic controls.
My own personal preference is to put definitions to the pattern
(phenotype) as closely to the genetic make up (genotype) as we can in
order to make good seperation and distinction. The better the similar
patterns are distinguished the less confusion there will be in the
I would rather say
a yellow plicata crossed with a blue plicata ..
a yellow banded plicata genotype crossed with an anthocyanin banded
A lot simpler, in the long run. And more consistent and predictable
outcome with the seedlings, if that is what you wanted of course.
