Re: Checkerboard Pattern Soft Brown and White----Iris????


This type of pattern can appear on MAIDEN bloom only---in my experience.  This means--the first bloom of a seedling.  I've had some gorgeous things happen in this stage, including impossible patterns, but know to enjoy as it won't be the same in following years.

Subject: [iris-photos] Checkerboard Pattern Soft Brown and White----Iris????


A lady wrote to Prescott Area Iris Society and they forwarded it to me.

Several years ago on the campus of Fresno State University in their iris garden I saw one with a checkerboard pattern in a soft brown and white.

I never hear Dr. Weiler speak of such an iris pattern not even in his seedlings.  Unfortunately the irises are long gone at Fresno State.

Anyone know of such an iris????
