> Chuck you talk about clones, so it is possible that this iris's
rhizomes  will keep this pigment?

Most of these variations are not passed on as starting point of the
change is above the rhizome. If it is in the rhizome then the increase
on that location will have either all of the flower with the darker
pigment or with a mix. Eventually the rhizomes will have either of the
two forms with no mix. The mix is an unstable situation which
eventually stabalizes one way or the other. The Batik with the flower
stalk that has each flower with 1/2 BC and 1/2 plicata will likely
throw a plant with all plicata markings as the change is obviously
fairly far down the stalk.
