Thanks, Chris. Vivacious is streaked with red pets, but I think the Indiana Blue has made the pets deeper maroon.

Carol, I like the nice deep colors you have on that one. If it holds up, it could be a great breeder plant for you.

The seedling posted above has lost its streaking, but here is a Vivacious x Fried Green Tomatoes that the 2nd flush of leaves is completely different than the first leaves, so you never know what might happen.
