Lots of pictures of variegated flowers in this thread but not one bit of the genetics of variegated flowers. Barbara McClintock is one of my heroes and she won a Nobel Prize for her genetic research on what I and other people call "jumping genes" or transposons. She used variegated Indian corn to determine that the reason for all the variegated colors was that a transposon turned on and off the formation of pigment. These transposons are the reason all variegated flowers are variegated.

I used to try to play "stump the doctor" with my medial doctor and he always knew the answer to my questions. I thought I had him with transposons but he was aware of them and even said that it has been proven that humans can have them and that they cause serious disease. His example was that if someone has them in their kidneys, they lose a lot of kidney function.

Hollyhill Bewitched has lots of small dots. Excellent cut flower but it is said that you have to grow extra plants to get as many flowers as you need.

We now grow stock that we got back from a small flower farmer friend that grew it the first year or two it came out. Her stock was excellent. We have enjoyed seeing it grow just like it did the first few years we had it.

This third year seedling is about 10 inches in diameter. I may grow enough of it to introduce next year as it won a prize in a seedling contest.

Anyone ever grow or see 'Pop Talk,' a BB ID Var purple/white variety? Apparently it grows fairly tall and is a good cutter.

Hollyhill Spreckles should be on this list. It's a darn cheerful little mini-ball, and made loads of flowers when it was in the Canby Trial Garden. It always made me feel happy. Thumbs up Not as tall as most Hollyhill varieties, but still good stems for cutting. A show winner too, its only competition is Hollyhill Confetti! Lobaugh's is selling it this year.
