The first bloom on Lotta Dotta really surprised me. It didn't have dots and it had a purple edge. I contacted Bill Maryott to review my photo of the bloom posted above to see whether it was the right plant, and he assured me that it was. He let me know that Lotta Dotta is HIGHLY variable in its dotting and coloring, and sometimes dotting is not present. The dotting you see on Bill's lead picture was on a bloom when it was very cool. He also let me know that Lotta Dotta is pod and pollen fertile, and its dots are a dominant trait, so there are dotted children in the first generation.
