HYB: more on reds from Lycopene and anthocyanins

  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] HYB: more on reds from Lycopene and anthocyanins

Here are some photos from cross R 60: Lotus Land X P 1-9, sib to Power Woman: (Swingtown x Romantic Evening)
The parents:
Lotus Land (not pictured)  Laced TB pink, very clear color, slightly more to the pale red than Happenstance.
P 1-9: top view.  Pigments are rich anthocanin, intense purple-blue beard, pronounced coppery cast through the heart of the flower showing that substantial carotinoids are present.  Apparently Tttt.
This and the following photo are from Abby Mogensen Evans, Charlotte TN where these seedlings are being grown.
This is one of two yellow or apricot seedlings from the R 60 cross of Lotus Land X P 1-9
Intense carotenoid pigments through the heart of the flower and down the sides of the falls are revealed by the presence of "I" inhibitor for blue or violet.
The missing standard allows the intensity of the beard color to be seen.  It is a result of "tttt"--full tangerine PLUS some warm violet-blue pigment intensifying the carot-toned Lycopene to deep red.  Part of the carotenoids in the petals, especially the standards, is expressed as Lycopene.  The balance are yellow carotenoids, giving the flower an apricot tone.
A trace of anthocyanin appears to be present through most of the flower, but is most intense at the base and end of the beard, characteristics typical of "I" non-blues.
A sib to the above, showing intense plum purple substantially warmed by Lycopene apricot or pink underlayment, rich and deep red beard a result of combining violet-purple anthocyanin and Lycopene.  The carotenoid pigments are quite intensified in the haft area.
These approaches to "red" are along the same lines of a number of Joe Ghio's varieties, including ROGUE and Aitken's CODE RED which approach red far more than the above, but for the same reason--hot carotinoids including Lycopene plus very warm anthocyanins.
