Linda Mann asks...
>> Are there reblooming diploids?  miniature tall bearded?

Walter Moores answers

>>Yes, some of the Sass brothers intros and probably G. Percy

***NONE*** of the Sass brothers' rebloomers were diploid. 'Autumn King'
introed in '24 was a tet, courtesy of: Amas -> Jake's Blue -> H.P. Sass #1
-> Autumn King.

Where the confusion arises is in the early attempts for pink. The diploids
reigned here longer than in any other category, eg,. 'Helen Field Fischer'
(J. Sass 39) and 'Pink Opal' (J. Sass 34). The early pink tets were a
decided step back in coloration compared to the dips -- but the potential
was there to produce a far better pink than ever could be achieved with the

G. Percy Brown went for two qualities in his introductions -- *!ALL!* else
was subordinate to these qualities. 1st -- reliable rebloom
                                2nd -- incredible hardiness

Despite the extreme 'dogginess' of his iris, they are, indeed, tetraploids.
