Thanks, Del.

I'd wondered about colorfastness, and thought you'd indicated in an earlier 
thread that it didn't hold well.  Have you ever seen "Deming's Purple" black 
walnut?  If I'm correct, it's a red/purple pigmented cultivar.  Been thinking 
about trying to graft it & Lamb's Curly, a figured-grained selection, planting 
them close together and see if maybe my grandkids could harvest some purple 
curly-grained walnut lumber from resulting seedlings.
