I finally got a chance to peak at this photo today, that Robin possted 
a few days ago.

I suspect that what you have here is a frost damaged flower that won't 
produce this colouration consistently, if ever again. I get this sort 
of thing with early flowers when there have been a few cold nights.
Raesons for saying this are
1) flower looks frost damaged at edges of falls and in tecture and form 
of standards.
2) Streaking is of the sort sseen in light coloured  flowers that are 
early bloomers.
3) anthocyanin is more prevalent  in  cold weather, ie early spring.
4) there is no plicata parentage, and broken colour is almost always 
 from plicata parentage, at least one.  Those BC plants that seem to not 
be from plicata parentage show plicata in their seedlings and sometimes 
in point mutations where they  reveral a plicata pattern, as often seen 
with Batik
5) Sometimes flowers show  BC pattern on fmaiden blom to never show it 

Perhaps this one is an exception, but I suspect not.
