There was at one time speculation that the *reichenbachii* parent of 
PROGENITOR was either a hybrid with *mellita/suaveolens* as one 
parent or *mellita* itself.  *I. mellita* has presumably been 
demonstrated to have the selective inhibitor (as in WHOLE CLOTH and 
other descendants of PROGENITOR) for anthocyanin (violet pigment) in 
the standards.  An example is MELAMOENA (Goett R. '60) IB 20" S. 
white; F. Light blue, veined.  (New Snow x Chivalry) X Mellita Vandee.

Seeds for *suaveolens* were listed in the SIGNA seed exchange this 
past year and might be available again this season.

In species seed, the genetic complement of individuals will vary.  
Some also MAY accidentally be hybrid in origin.
