diploids: I have a stupid question....

Anna, Tom Silvers answered your question very well.  Just for the fun of it,
I can add a note...In the older book, GARDEN IRISES, the "parent" so to
speak of THE WORLD OF IRISES, there was a list of chromosome counts of quite
a list of varieties.

The HIPS webside reprints this list to make it accessible to those who do
not have the Garden Irises book--long out of print, now.

The link to that list is:

Few of those varieties are still in commerce, but many do show up in
pedigrees, especially in the remote generations.  The crosses of diploid
mama to tetraploid papa made the size and tetraploid status of the Asiatic
tetraploids available to us in the colorful range present in the European
diploids, mostly derived from *variegata* and *pallida,* the latter often
seen even now in older gardens.
