Re: Re: Re: Anthocyanin-sidetracked

I saw that, and remember it... but I have filed amoena, and plicata thoughts under "not the tail I think I'm chasing."

I'm sure this doesn't help either but I had mentioned a while back of getting plicatas from I. suaveolens when crossed with Swertii.

>And to further muddle things up for you, I've got what should be glaciata seedlings in a second generation from KUPARI (a glaciata white Iris pallida) crossed with Iris suaveolens. I say "should be" because suaveolens has contributed some pale anthocyanin pigmentation that is showing up only in the falls. When I had first discussed this with Neil, years ago, when we were only seeing the first generation, we talked of it as a "dominant amoena" gene - like I(s), but now that I've been working with it for a little longer. I'm starting to think of it differently. I'll see if I can find a picture and repost it to Iris-Photos. So you can see what I mean.
