I thank you for the advices, I had
already noticed that the yellow background exalts the stripes !
fact crossing Sriped Butterfly with a intense
yellow TB (not plicata but plicata parent) I obtained this one
that induced me to develop the stripes.
Striped Butterfly X (Rippling Waters x Wild Ginger)
His grandson , that temporary I named
Nuovi Orizzonti (New Horizons), of which I attach a most
corresponding photo, is undoubtedly a plicata, but I think that the
strong stripes in throat have inherited from Striped
Butterfly or back from the parent of SB :
Butterfly Wings, historical iris by G.B.White.
I too crossed Butterfly Wings with
plicatas obtaining stripes always :
(B W x Focus) X Queen in
I already crossed Nuovi Orizzonti
with Owee Desert and,following your advices, with
Corolla (hybrid by my friend Augusto Bianco) and with my
GK02:(Kilt Lilt X Queen in Calico).
I think in future to direct the crosses
with the ringed plicatas and with the striped like Louis d'Or
Lilt X Queen in Calico)

This is basically a stripped plicata , such as Circus Stripes
Autunm Circus, on an intense yellow ground. I had predicted
colour pattern during my talk on plicata genetics at this
Oklahoma Pollen Dobbers seminar. To continue this pattern you need
select plicata parents with intense yellow ground. The intense
seems to be recessive and can disapear quickly in crosses if
selected for, Similar colour pattern exsist with Internal Fire
Burst. Possible parent partners are Hot Chocolate, Glitz
Burst, Los Coyotes. Broadway, and Light Beam are also possible
Good luck on developing this.
