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.

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?

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.
