Re: Pink, orange, and apricot

I have put some photos up on iris-photo which may help distinguish apricot from orange. This can be tricky to distinguish at times. Different people can describe the same flower very differently. Sometimes it can be very difficult to tell from descriptions which it is, and unfortunately retouched glamor photos don't make it any easier. Parentage can help make the distinction.

If a yellow can produce seedlings with red beard, it has a good dosage of t. Perhaps even four, as sometimes a deep yellow with an orange beard can be four sets of t, which shows beard as a combination of lycopene and carotene, producing orange. Breeding results, should help distinguise this.

AS for breeding for orange, it would be best to have one recessive in four dosages in order to increase probability of getting the double recessive recombined. That is, crossing orange to pink and crossing seedlings or back crossing to parent.
