Just out of curiosity how does one know that "Vanity carries an dominant
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 ?\
