Loss of Color

Thanks to Tom Little, Carolyn Schaffner, Louise Parsons 
and Clarence Mahan for the info on factors affecting 
trueness of color to parent plants. I'm a newbie to 
both irising and the internet.  My mother enjoyed a 
number of varieties of TB's back in the 60's and 70's. 
 Now that she is gone, I have some of her stock in my 
garden in NC.  I don't know their names, but they form 
large and healthy blooms.  The soil in KY is also clay, 
although mine is more red.  My first TB's bloomed on 
April 22nd.  The yellows (bicolors and single color) 
came first and I'm now getting the darker colors in 
bloom.  Siberians bloomed last week and the Dutch iris 
came out yesterday.  I must be hooked, because I have 
TB's ordered for planting in Sept.
