Gareth; I would bet that it would cross with
reticulata but just as intriquing would be getting it
to self. The commercial clone is green with blackish
markings but when Nigel Service reported in the New
Plantsman on the populations he had observed he noted
and photgraphed pure yellows and various combinations
of greenish yellows and browns. There are also forms
with very long leaves that lay on the ground and
leaves that are covered with silvery pubescence. It
seems there is a lot more to Iris tuberosa than the
commonly grown cultivar. maybe a selfed plant would
show a bit of variation in its seedlings.
