Oh, that's lovely!  Wouldn't it look *wild* you could get offspring from it with the same form and falls, but with huge purple streaks in the standards?  (just dreaming, here!)

From what I've seen so far, most of the broken-color iris out there from certain genetic lines can pass along some poor plant health and/or foliage quality.  For that reason, I only have a few in my garden.  But I'm sure there are exceptions to the generality, and I really do like broken color iris.  I think they're quite wild and wonderfully exotic!  'Bewilderbeast' won People's Choice award (a pretty prestigious award for a show our size) two years ago, and made quite an impression with the news reporter that was there...  and I couldn't have agreed more with the peoples' choice.  :-)

Doesn't show up well in this photo, but this seedling has shown a few random purple
splashes on most blooms for 3 years now.  Top edge of top standard in middle of photo
is showing a little bit.
Big, robust plant, burly stalks, wide, thick foliage.  Has grown much better here
than the (admittedly few) broken color cultivars I've tried. No RE.
Do I need to cross with BC to have a reasonable shot of BC in the next generation?
The only other BC I've ever used was Broken Dreams.  Crossed with pinks, they
were all just pinks. (very short pinks)
BTW - If any of you remember waaay back - I had a yellow sport of Infernal Fire.
It did turn out to be stable, but I saw no virtue in it, so it went away.
