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.
