Guess this just shows how much I don't know about these things.  Now I'm really confused. 
If it happened right after fertilization, why didn't it show up in the first year blooms instead of now, some 15+ years later? 
Or does this happen often with "Being Busy?"  Not all the time, since it's not included in the registration description.  (below)
BEING BUSY (Ben Hager, R. 1992). Sdlg. SD4978Y/MrSp. SDB 10-15" (25-38 cm) ML.
"S. bright yellow; F. deep maroon red, narrowly edged greyed mauve; beards blue. SD4447: (Combo x April Fool) X Rabbit's Foot., Adamgrove 1993. HM 1995"
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
