got a question for all y'all SDB lovers.

we have a lot of shade here due to heavy forestation. a few miles away that is not the case. But in N. Raleigh, it's about like living in a National Forest.

Therefore, I have never cared for dull colored flowers. The brighter the better.

What is it in the genectics of the SDBs that causes so many dull colors? The more I see, the more I think "greyed out," "heathered", "dull." One or two will POP like I like to see. but the rest literally blend into what's at my feet.

I guess what I'm asking is, if I want to start collecting some, what is it I should try to avoid, or try to get?
