Looks like you're getting nice form on that cross.  You should get 1/6 
plicata by crossing sibs, and hopefully some with yellow grounds.  It does 
seem that getting yellow grounds isn't nearly as easy, though there are more 
out there as time goes on.  'Osage Buff' is in the background of almost every 
yellow, peach and pink grounded plicata that I have run a pedigree for (so 
often through Gigolo, but sometimes Rancho Rose.)

I did get a yellow ground on a variegata plicata seedling from 'Orange 
Popsicle' and 'Agressively Forward'  Both parents have lines to Osage Buff. 
(truly horrid seedling, but at least the pattern was interesting) 

I would think that 'Radiant Bliss' being a Gigolo grandkid would make the 
yellow ground more frequent.  Now all you have to do is get them to rebloom 
too.  We don't want much do we  : )
