My grandfather has been into daylilies since the begging of time I suppose. I think he actually started some time in the 70s. Anyways he is great source of information on the flowers. he brought up something he called "white factor" the other day. I googled it but cant find any info. I've heard of red factor in snakes But he said its related to the flower prairie blue eyes. know anything?

Maybe he meant albinism (leaves)?

What I inferred from our conversation was it was a form of hypomelanism or dilution of color

It has been noted in the forum previously that 'Prairie Blue Eyes' carries albino, which of course is lethal to affected seedlings. So you mean dilution of the flower colour?

yeah thats what i was looking for but been having a long conversation with maurice about it. its unlikely to work. Im now looking for flowers who genetic paths turn off the Pathways, Enzymes and in the branches of Carotenoids. I don't think it exists still doing research.
