Hi All;
Maybe someone out there can help.  The other day we found a bloom among
our Batik that we don't recognize. It is a white (or off white) self,
with violet beards tipped mustard, more heavily toward the throat.  It
has a violet crest like Batik  and the standards and falls have a line
of violet at the very edge with a narrow, lacy band of violet around the
petals which also have violet freckles scattered around.
We checked on the parentage of Batik which are Aegean Star and Purple
Streaker-(which we have).  The description of Aegean Star sounds exactly 
like our mystery bloom.
Has anyone heard of a cultivar regressing to one of it's parents?  Or is
there some other explaination of this?
We would appreciate any information or comments on this.

Where we are gaining on the quail and the garden is showing lots of
color, and most of our iris are normal.
