Re: HYB: REF: variegata/umbrata/amoena pattern

Great stuff Chuck.  Thanks for sharing these tidbits you are finding.

Neil, there's that thing you keep saying about "umbrata" anthocyanin
only being in the surface layer of cells.

<Henderson, Norland "Color-Patterns in the Tall-Bearded Iris" BAIS #241
April 1981:    "Iris variegata, a light yellow iris species from Europe
has maroon veining on the falls that spreads in some forms to produce a
maroon spot covering the entire blade except for a narrow yellow margin.
This spot of deep blue-violet is an overlay since it is restricted to
the cells of the upper epidermis......>

& the "recessive" part of WABASH being recessive amoena is the white
ground color.
