From: "Mark, Maureen" <MARKM@tc.gc.ca>

Hi Rosalie,

CANADIAN STREAKER has made it across the border.  We carried a piece of it
across the border to the WNYIS auction and a few people in that club had
ordered it also (I know because we delivered their orders.)  Perry Dyer also
has it. (I don't if his e-mail is fixed yet though.)

The genealogy is very interesting.  To date, the popular view had been that
the pod parent should have variegated foliage to produce some offspring with
variegated foliage.  This cross proves otherwise.  Moreover, the parents are
irises that have been around for a while.  You would think that someone had
made this cross before, particularly as whites have always been popular.

Does anyone know if variegated foliage was actually unpopular as opposed to
benign disinterest in foliage?
