Thanks so much for that info.  I will share it with Phil.  He was under the idea that it couldn't happen to Tetraploids.  Good to know!  Have a great night

Subject: Re: Dumping irises!( was Can Someone explain this?)

That is a great story.  I don't think that occurred here, but still an
interesting story.  I spoke to a local iris farm about this iris
anomaly and
he gave me an interesting explanation.  He said that there are
occurences
with diploid iris when the chromosomes falter and it can actually throw
an
unusual rhizome increase that is different from the mother rhizome.  He
explained to me that this can't occur with tetraploids, because the
chromosome makeup does not support it.  Who knows.   But I plan on
cutting
this rhizome loose in the fall and planting it independently to see what
occurs next year! :)  Have a great night
Linda
