    Question Purp hybrid with light windows?

    I was just thinking about a plant I am trying to breed. Is there any sarras that look like a purp and have light windows like a leucophylla?

    like straight up purp? cant recall, but not impossible. will take many introgressed crosses between both leucophylla and purpurea, but mostly purpurea.

    If one seeks light windows, why not add minor to the mix?

    Last summer I crossed a S. 'Umlauftiana' with a purp that looked like this:

    So far I am still wating for the seed to grow.

    I saw them for sale at the ICPS 2012 show. Not as dramatic a color change "windows" as a regular Leuco,
    but definately there!
    I don't think I have any pics of the ones I saw, but I will give my stuff a lookie.
    (Don't remember who it was that had them either.)
    Perhaps someone else saw them & remembers?
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    S. x mitchelliana x purpurea have small amounts of light windows in them.
    These are the crosses I was thinking of making are:

    This year
    S. X excellens x (X mitchelliana x purpurea) and more S. 'Umlauftiana' x purpurea

    and when they are mature I will cross both together.
