Chris, Are you able to get Cygon 2E in Canada?  I am in California and do not seem to be able to find it anymore. I think it must be on the 'no-go' list here. Too bad, it really works in many ways. I guess it has gone the way of DDT. I used to use that with discretion [no spray, just a diluted solution on a damp cloth] on the interior beams of my house and I never got spiders (Daddy Long Legs).

It sure looks like it's going to be slim pickings for SA seedlings this year.  I still have the perennial spathe borer problem that has damaged and caused many of the buds to rot.  If been able to control Iris borers with Cygon 2E but these nasty little white borers I call spathe borers are most irritating !  My only hope is to try Imidicloprid based products but these are still not available in Canada.
Anyway, here is a seedling with greenish tan standards that I believe is from Thornbird.  It shares some similarities with Donald's seedling, especially with the nice bald sword like horns it has.
