To take this a step further, I will add a small chunk of information, which is extremely limited and may be totally worthless! 
Several years ago, I made a cross with Another Journey X Double Vision.  DV gave me 3 blooms total.  Then it died.  The cross produced 23 seed of which 4 grew to maturity.  This spring was the first time I'd seen bloom on any of them.  One lost it's bloom stalk early but 3 bloomed. 
One was a lovely mahogany self, but my surprise came when 2 remaining seedlings were plicata, one a plain plicata but other is different to my eyes. . . with tiny dots of color.  Don't think there is any chance it's a luminata, but I do think it would be termed 'fancy.'   Sorry, no picture of the plicatas. 
At first I was saying how can this be, my red seedling is not a plicata.  Then I remembered that Violet Miracle, by way of Her Royal Highness, is a part of it's ancestry.
