Mtn. Sunrise gives the "banded" and "bleed" patterns in first generations with just about anything it is crossed with.  The double banded and triple banded seedlings have come from crosses of the two lines together.  Interestingly I am in the 5th and 6th generations of banded/rimmed crosses and nothing is going to plicata.... 
Thanks to all who responded about the two iris, sometimes you just don't know if anybody ever sees your iris.  AIS national convention is always hit and miss depending on weather and bloom season being late, early or on time, ditto for regionals.

Mike, MOUNTAIN SUNRISE is still alive - looks pretty sad, one small fan,
but at least still hanging on this time.

I thought FALL ENTERPRISE was doing ok, but I can't find it today. Will
keep looking & let you know if I find it.

Both in pots where I can give some protection/bring indoors if needed.

Mike, do all the seedlings you are using from the Mt SUN & Fall E lines
have the pattern?

In other words, do both parents have to have it for seedlings to show up
with multiple bands?

I'm just wondering how many generations of seedlings/how much inbreeding
it's going to take to get those patterns back after crossing them with
my "vale" adapted seedlings.

east TN zone 7, according to USDA, but zone 8 by the thermometer for the
last several years, including this one.
