That is a very nice color! Think about this....when things cross pollinate, there is always going to be a dominate color, which you can end up with all kinds of variations, but in the end the resulting seed will go back to the dominate color or shades of. [nutz] Ok..I sound a little nutty here, and can't really explain it properly, but in the mean time have a good time trying for different colors.
