Hmmmmm, well if it adds to the flower why is it a
defect? does it cause problems with flower ie. opening or twisting
? I have an ice blue seedling that has a clear rim that I really like
and have used it for breeding specifically for the rim on the
standards....probably just comes down to personal preference.
Plus, the crystalline edge makes it easier to evaluate the crystalline
"beads" on the blade and analyze its breeding potential. My favorite had
silver edge and beadwork. Anyone remember the old MIRROR, MIRROR?
Just imaging its silver streak as an edging.
