Well....  I've rarely been accused of oversimplifying things, but I'll give 
it my best shot this time.  The inhibitor simply represses the expression of 
the red-violet to blue-violet pigments.  The result csn be anything from 
clean white thru ivory and pale yellow to deep orange -- as well as flamingo 
pink.  This inhibitor is dominant, so if you cross two such cultivars it is 
always possible that neither parent will pass on the inhibitor and the violet 
pigments will reappear in the offspring.

Please feel free to take this discussion off-list, using smciris@aol.com.
