Definition as written by Joan:

A specific type of edge on a flower, where the edge is of a different color than that of the flower\'s base color. Picotees can have borders or margins which are lighter or darker, but they should be of a contrasting color.

Definition as written by turektaylor:

The only criterion is that the edge be of a contrasting color as the base of the flower; it can sometimes take bizarre shapes as well as hooks, horns, teeth, bubbles, braids, or fringe. All picotees are edges, but not all edges are picotees. All picotees are picoteed edges. -from the ahs_dictionary
