I will often see an "alba" hybrid when both alba parents are used, however. So, my original statement was based on the thought that the cornu-cervi "alba" had passed on some of its form traits, but not much of the "alba," except for the white tips on the petals, perhaps. Of course, there's going to be a great amount of variation in seed crosses, so those white tips could be from almost anything...but because I'd seen a couple of Valentiniis that looked pretty similar to this one, I thought it was a reasonable possibility that the cornu-cervi "alba" could have been involved, just not prominently visible in the offspring.
Of course, as always when it comes to these types of things, we're all just guessing anyway, right? How is it that we can put a man on the moon but not a proper tag on a flower? :P
