    Default b nodosa x slc Katie's Cutie

    Not the clearest picture I've taken, but the color comes across. This is the only nodosa cross I have in which the deep color of the other parent came through.

    I have some pollen stored from my B jiminey cricket. Do think there's any chance the red color might make it thru a second cross? Or would the nodosa on both sides completely dominate?

    While I can't answer the question exactly, it would depend on whether white flower color is dominant or recessive and is it autosomally or sexually linked. With Mendlian genetics one also has to consider the Penetrance and Expressivity of the gene pair. This is why parents (people) with brown eyes can have a child with blue eyes.

    Nice! I'm surprised that the nodosa lip did not prove to be more dominant.
