re: unanswered hybridizing questions

Chad writes

:        Just out of curiosity how does one know that "Vanity carries an
:inhibitor for the blue/violet >pigment family", does this come from
:experience ?
:or is this a feature of all "pinks" (I am assuming Vanity is a pink), and is
:pink always recessive ?  I would be interested in sources for this type of
:information about color/form traits and their linking and dominance
:characteristics. Are there some Iris specific books in print ?\

_The World of Irises_ is a good place for some of this information. Regarding
the inhibitor, it seems to be present in almost all whites, yellows, and pinks.
There is also a recessive white (actually several), but it is quite rare in
modern TBs. Therefore if a TB does not have any blue or violet pigment visible,
it almost certainly carries the inhibitor.
