Paul, I assure you it was not intended as a "trick"  question!  There are a 
number of people making iris crosses that are  not genetic experts.  We need 
all the help we can get!  I agree  that it is a big help to have some idea of 
what to expect from a given  cross.  Surprises are fun too!  
For clarification . . . recessive whites carry anthocyanin which is  often 
visible in the blue tinge of the bud?  Like IMMORTALITY??  But,  can be present 
without being obvious?  Are you saying it is connected to  the plicata 
gene/genes?  Since you gave Laced Cotton as an example?  
Normally, I don't work much with whites, but I've just planted 60+  seedlings 
from Lunar Whitewash x Romantic Evening.  I'm expecting various  shades of 
purple considering the ancestry of LW.  
Muddy purple is not my goal but is expected in first generation from this  
cross.  Anything that reblooms with a red beard would be welcome here.  <vbg> 
I'm not encouraged by their comparative lack of vigor.  
If you  don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
