HYB: Pink Inhibitor (was pink sdlng)

This part/lurker new hybridizer appreciates your input on the Pink side of
things!    Are there any other colors that react this way?  I still have a
tricky time thinking in "water" colors vs. "oil" colors, and how they either
mix together, or cover each other.

Will cross post this e-mail to Iris Talk as well, to get it off the Photos

sarcastic tone and got a detailed lecture about the genetics of pinks.  I'm
sure you are already aware of this, but for the benefit of any lurkers who
haven't worked with pinks themselves....
> Most pinks show that color because they have the inhibitor that blocks
expression of the red-violet to blue-violet pigments.  It takes only one
dose.  So when two pinks are crossed, the inhibitor may or may not be passed
along to a given seedling.  If your two-tone blue were otherwise
outstanding -- think substance, form, bud count, growth habits, etc. -- it
could be a valuable parent in your quest for pinks.  All it would take is
pairing it with a good pink that does carry the inhibitor.
