I seemed to have ended up with about five bags of seeds, most bonuses, that are a black x white. Does anyone know what color flower this would make, or is it a waste of time and space. I mean I know....anything is possible, but a good educated guess or your experience is fine.

I would think you may get some purples or pinks with a black on white cross. It depends on the white flower. Does the white have more yellow tones or pink tones?? I have actually made some crosses like that but have not as yet planted any.

I've looked through my cross lists, and don't have any blacks x whites
that have bloomed yet. But, depending on the shades of black and white,
I can imagine some lavenders, pinks, rose, browns, or even yellow.
It's such fun though to see if what is imagined comes to fruition. Sometimes yes,
sometimes no.
