Re: HYB: Blue beards

Just out of curiosity, are there any wild 40 chromosome species that have
yellow with blue beards? I. lutescens (and perhaps some others of those
with similar chromosome compliments) were used extensively in early SDB
breeding, weren't they?


I am not aware of any, and although this is only indirect evidence, why would hybridizers have made complicated crosses with dark colored dwarfs and talls to produce yellow SDBs with blue beards if naturally occurring dwarfs with this combination of flower and beard color were already available?
