Thank you so much for posting this picture! It looks exactly like the
photo I posted tonight. Perhaps they are the same. My photo
originally captured the colors the same as yours, but I messed with it to brown
it up a bit in my photo editor, to get it closer to the color it had while
sitting next to my computer. Still and all, it was a bit off even after I
tweaked the coloring the best I could.
Now, here is my big question...are there beards on the inside of the
falls. There are on my flowers.
I thought this feature, along with the veining and narrowness of the falls
would make this more of a regeliacyclus than an OGB+ as you described.
The registration states: BEDOUIN CHILD
(H. McKusick, R. 1973). AR, 20" (51 cm), E.
S. red-brown with some
markings of stolonifera but lighter; F. same; overall color is darker and
richer than stolonifera; metallic blue beard. I. stolonifera X unknown C. G.
White oncogeliabred. Aril Society 1974.
I. Stolonifera is a regelia, isn't it? And the unk oncogeliabred used
in the cross had part regelia in it. So, wouldn't that make it more
regelia than Onco?
I am not that well versed on AB terminology as I would like to be, so
please forgive my questions. I am striving to learn

OGB+ type AB. McKusick '73. The color misses a
bit. It's both a bit
redder and brownish at the same time.
Still this was the closest match I
could get. I took a lot of photos
and all were under windy conditions. I
doubt either my lighting or
wind is going to allow anything better. I don't
cut the irises, but
sometimes when I'm trying to take the photograph, I'm
regret it later.
