you will not get any greens, as neither parent is green.

if both parents are sf, you will get all blue series. some with grey added, some with violet added, some with both grey and violet added (can look mauveish) and some with neither grey or violet.

for the varieties, you could get normals, spangles, dom pied and dom pied spangles.
