Those pictures are crazy -- not what I was expecting. Are there still some all-red clusters or is the entire plant all two-toned? It's been a long time since I've taken a plant generics course, but I have no idea what's going on if the entire plant has turned two-toned. If it's just a cluster of two-toned flowers that can all be traced back to a single branch, then the simple explanation is that there was a mutation in that branch that lead to two-toned flowers.Seeds from the two-toned flowers could produce plants with two-toned flowers (as well as solid red and solid white plants) depending on what the mutation was that causes the variety). A better way to keep the line going would be to root branches cut above the initial mutation (although I have no idea how hard it is to make cuttings from myrtles).-Brian
