Re: OT: A source for Chimeras?

I'm assuming the thread is generally about chimeras as they relate to the 
botanical world. I've assumed that chimeras exist in the iris as they do in 
the daylily. I've further assumed that chimeras in the iris world have an odd 
number of chromosomes. About all I have to add is that the name comes from 
Greek mithology that depicts a beast half goat and half lion (from memory, 
may be different animals). Still hoping someone pulls the thread or pushes 
the string.

I would first like to know how many chromosomes an iris chemera has?
I would also like to know (curious) why anyone would want one?
