Thanks for the photos. Certainly look like a hybrid.
I don't consider the purple at the base as PBF. This is a different
condition, I call it purple rhizome (perhaps someone has a different
term that has been used). This is seperate from PBF which is on the
leaves and usually several inches of the leaf. There are a lot of
smaller iris (SDB, MDB etc.) with this colouration in various
intensities. I started to record this at one time and also classified
some as having both purple rhizome and PBF. PBF is only on leaves
where exposed to sun, purple rhizome is most pronounced under leaves
and not reduced by absence of sun. If you do an epidermal peel of PBF
you find it only in the epidermis.

Subject: [iris-photos] Seedling Iris tectorum hybrid
Here are photos of the seedling I posted about at
Iris-Talk and Iris-Species-Forum. The first image
shows the pleated foliage typical of Iris tectorum --
although it's atypically tall and narrow. The second
image shows a close-up of the leaf bases (at the
rhizome) where a little bit of PBF (purple based
foliage) is now showing. I've never seen PBF on any
Iris tectorum, so I'm encouraged that this is really
the intended hybrid: Iris tectorum alba X bearded
diploid (Iris pallida 'Kupari' X Iris variegata).
Has anyone ever seen this purple pigment at the leaf
bases of any clones of Iris tectorum?
