	I think Brad prefers to call his creations "broken-colored"
	 rather than variegated as Allan Ensminger does..we had a pretty
	 complete thread on this a short time ago (probably before the
	Walters joined us). Thank you and  Chris H. for responding - I
	wasn't sure if I had remembered correctly if B.B. was an iris
	or a lily....need those checklists.
