I guess since this my seedling I'll answer with my opinion. I don't
find the haft makings offensive or bad if they don't take away from the
overall appearence of the flower. If they are blended or have a
transitioning effect as a hybridizer I don't mind them at all. Its when
there is a distinctive stop and go effect I would find it objectionable.
My seedling 24L1 is border line in my opinion. It could go either
way. The flower is bold enough the haft marking kind of take a back seat
to the rest of its beauty. I have several seedlings where
I am working on extending the haft marking where they become part of the
overall appearance. Below is one example. Just my opinion.
