Re: iris DIGEST V1 #522

Thanks for the reminder on these. They all are examples that show that cartenoid pigments can be also distributed via plicata genes. Many BC cultivars show this distribution of cartenoid plus anthocyanin, Of these Tiger honey is primarily butterscotch, a mix of anthocyanin and cartenoid, Quail Ail has anthocyanin heavily in area of petals in proximal parts of petals (close to joining point) and I suspect Baboon Bottom has a lot of anthocyanin present. The other two, Saharan Sun and Gnu Generation are good examples of the broken colour in yellow. I'll add those to my list of this limited colour type.
