Re: HYB: what to do with glaciata?

I have had glaciatas from luminata and glaciata crosses which do show anthocyanin coloring. The color is present as a belly stripe down the fall as much as a quarter inch wide and presented as tiny dots. This pattern shows on both?white and pink backgrounds. This is the first year I have been able to cross these variants to see if they breed true. Unfortunately the plants are not vigorous and the seed numbers are low.

Jean Stevens was an advocate of crossing recessives to uncover even more recessive traits. See the report of the second international iris conference in Florence in 1963.
