Re: HYB: Blue beards

"The World of Irises" indicates Blueberry Muffins, Zing and Easter Holiday
as the first blue-bearded yellows.
In the first two the blue beards came obviously from Iris aphylla through
Black Forest. Last one is actually an arilbred with very little amount of
Iris pumila.


> An examination of the pedigree of STOCKHOLM (Warburton, 1972), a notable
early blue-bearded yellow SDB, confirms what Dorothy has said and also
suggests that the TB side of the ancestry could also have contributed to the
anthocyanin pigmented beards.
> The pedigree of STOCKHOLM is
> sdlg 56IJ-2:(((Great Lakes x blue pumila) x (blue pumila x Spanish Peaks))
x Blueberry Muffins) X sdlg 57I4:(sdlg x Blueberry Muffins)
> In turn the pedigree of BLUEBERRY MUFFINS (Warburton, 1963), greenish
buff-tan blend with violet beards, is
> (Black Forest x yellow pumila sdlg) X Red Dandy
> and RED DANDY (Warburton, 1961) described as deep purplish red self with
violet beards has the pedigree
> Garden Flame X (red-violet pumila x unknown).
