Thank you, Mike - digitizing all those pictures was a lot of work, 
but very interesting.  Unless a person grows masses of flowers from 
seed, one never sees the range of variation that is possible. 
Usually, the grower chooses a couple of favourites, and that is all 
that the rest of us see.  Maybe we all would have chosen differently.

You mention a number of times that you are selecting for flowers 
arranged radially.  This is a good idea for a garden plant, as so 
often one-sided flower heads resolutely turn their backs on the 
viewer, no matter which way they get planted.
