Subject: [iris-photos] broken color reblooming ugly seedling with hafts

This one opened today and is still expanding.  been working for wide,
ruffled reblooming BCs.  I guess this qualifies, now to get something that
is pretty or at least something that doesn't cause revulsion.  guess this
one would fit the "repell" category!
Mike - recovering from a hard drive/motherboard meltdown.

  I've always just called them "haft markings" or "haft marks...along the
beard" or some such.

  Some irises are enhanced by them.  Others repell.  It just depends on the
neatness and the biases of the viewer.

  The more extreme ones result from nearly solid "umbrata" fall overlays,
using the term Linda Mann has introduced.  The opposite extreme of "umbrata"
are the butterfly wing veinings covering the fall.  The trait comes from
*Iris variegata.*  I suspect all expressions of the markings you show are
variations of the umbrata pattern.

  Most umbratas are bitone, but this one seems to have such intense
coloration in the standards it comes off as a self.  The amoena from Meek in
a subsequent post in response to yours has both the Progenitor "I-sub-s*
inhibitor *and* the umbrata, as do many of the very dark bitones and
