<< Chuck Chapman's comment about bud and spathe coloring being quite 
 differently related agrees with my own experience.  In the late 
 sixties a group of seedlings from AUGUST ASTER showed one with red 
 bloomstalk, a couple with some stalk coloration, and a number of the 
 cross with colored edges of the spathes, a characteristic present in 
 the grandparent CHIVALRY.  None of the seedlings had pbf. >>

This comment reminds me to ask if anyone else has noted the intense purple 
spathes and buds on Tompkins BUTTERCUP BOWER (1961) ?  This iris, new to my 
garden, was striking just before bloom, showing creamy yellow buds and 
intense purple spathes.  Interestingly enough, I did NOT notice any purple 
coloration on the plant earlier in the season, or after bloom.
