This hybrid utilized the red petals of the venustum grandparent to make the dark petals. This is my discovery during my venustum research.

Venustum is the only species that can transmit this because it has yellow carotenoid mesophyll layers that make the red/magenta pigments on the epidermal layers appear true red.
