First was a 36 inches tall mid purple-blue that had the white bib and a lovely mid-lavender beard.  The form is a little old-fashioned.  Great branching!  Deep purple eyelashes at the tips of the beards.....this pattern did come from the arilbred lines.

So all three of them, even the broken-color one, had the eyelash pattern from the arilbred side. I know next to nothing about arilbreds except that they're unlikely to grow for me in a shady yard in NYC, but I don't remember seeing lots of eyelashes on arilbreds posted here.  Does anyone have a picture of an iris that's dominated by the eyelash pattern?  Because if breeding could supply a little mascara, you could get a white self with long thick dark-violet lashes, which sounds amazing.
