LOVELY photo, Pearl! Not only the iris, but
the background too.
Are you talking about the markings on the
standards? If so - those markings may or may not be "virus"
markings. If it is then I don't believe it is genetically
transferable. I had an iris with virus markings years ago, but once I
planted it in another location those markings never showed up
again. If it is part of it's genetics - then of course it quite possibly
will show up on your cross.
How exciting!!! Good luck with your cross!!

damage. But it started me to thinking that this color combination would be
something special. So since Tiger Honey also opened this morning, I made my
first planned cross. Too bad it will take so long to find out if it
