I have checked all my I. cristata's and the signal pattern only varies in 
depth of color, from not visible to very dark.
I wonder if Linda has I. verna growing in her woods. Both species should be 
native there. I have not had any success blooming I. verna and can not 
locate a really good description or photo. I do have an extensive 
horticultural library, heavy on iris books.
The other possibility is ;she has a distinct form of I. cristata and I need 
a sample for evaluation.  : )
