HYB: I(s) & umbrata dreams ...

Sounds like one way to get umbratas with fall bands the color of
standards but without all the unattractive mess at the hafts would be to
layer a strongly colored umbrata over a light colored I(s) neglecta.
Maybe the white areas on the hafts of umbratas would be more subdued,
taking the color of the underlying I(s)?

Do any of the I(s) amoenas or neglectas have light colored rims on the
falls?  Seems like quite a few tend to fade out a bit, but I can't think
of any where the edges are actually white or standard colored..

A few years ago, Chuck Chapman, I think, suggested crossing umbrata with
plicata to get 'interesting' children.  The only cross available at the
time that took was WILD THING X INTO THE NIGHT, no seedlings big enough
to bloom so far.

Anybody have baby pictures of this type of cross they want to post?
