I think it is worth trying and see if the seedlings of this strange brew iris will indeed replicate itself. Please do try for those thta have this iris and keep us informed..

Betty,
These are quite common around here, we see several a
year.
I'd always been told it is a somatic mutation or some
sort of mutation of the pigment. I find it hard to
believe that it occurred during formation of the seed,
just after fertilization since these are a common
occurance among seedlings.
I chalk it up to an unstable gene.
I doubt that Paul's flower will repeat this again, or
at least to this degree.
