Sounds like you'll be wanting one of the banded things coming from
Colorado.... is that Baumank?

It might be worth sending an e'mail.  I bet if
the have one it's in the cull or breeder pile and not in the intro pile.

Subject: [iris] HYB: TB: yellow patterns?

I've been going thru old and new
catalogs (rainy day) looking at patterns in yellow (or pink or orange) tall
bearded irises and can't find anything quite like what I'm looking for.  Maybe
someone can help?

I'm looking for either white or yellow (or pink or orange)
standards, white falls with a yellow (or pink or orange) rim or band around
the outside edge <and> a blotch or wash of yellow (or pink or orange) around
the beards.

I've found many white falls with a band of yellow, quite a few
with yellow shoulders, but can't find anything like that.  Is there such a

Some of the medians are close - maybe this pattern would have to come
from them?
i.e., Arianna photo in Tempo Two catalog looks like it, although
from description, the "honey" color around the beards is maybe due to added
anthocyanin, not just yellow.

I wonder if the combination of yellow 'amoena'
with a really wide white rim and no white around the beard crossed with
something with white falls and a yellow rim could produce the pattern I'm
looking for.

Chuck, have you thawed out of the snow yet?  Any suggestions?
