Playing in iris-register, I found this descendant of MULBERRY ROSE:

MEADOW MIST (Ghio, R. `62). 59-5OR. TB, 38", ML, YlG.
"Creamy green-yellow self, light blue blaze below bronze beard. (Desert
Song x (Tiffanja x Mulberry Rose)) X Char-Maize. Ghio `64."

So maybe S1bwh does have some green.
Neil responds:
The description including the "light blue blaze" indicates the pattern distribution of Desert Song has been inherited in Meadow Mist.  Desert Song has a light colored or almost white flash below the beard.  A very pale blue expressed in a flower with this coloring in low dosage level but in the Desert Song pattern would have some greenish tone to it, especially considering the Char-Maize ancestry, with a blue-toned blaze.  Some co-pigments usually associated with clear, light blues appear to be present, indicated both by the "greenish" rather than a tan tone to the "creamy-yellow."  Mulberry Rose may or may not have contributed to the end result as may or may not the rather colorful TIFFANJA, both in the great-grandparent generation.
Desert Song is from Snow Flurry X Golden Eagle.  Snow Flurry, as a dominant "I" white, has a significant amount of delicate blue showing through, and Golden Eagle had a yellow that tended slightly to the greenish side of spectrum yellow rather than the warm, bright tone of Ola Kala and other descendents of Prairie Sunset.  Both these influences may be present in MEADOW MIST.
