Neil,  I'll continue to make reciprocal crosses when possible.  I have 2 
different groups that will bloom this spring from 'near' reciprocal crosses.   
(pretty pink x average red 1) and then (average red 2 x pretty pink) Both have 
rebloom genetics. 
The other is my white line including Silverado and Ghio's Double Dribble.  

Would the results from a wide cross like the one I described indicate that 
the pod parent contributes more, but, in the case of line breeding where there 
are so many common relatives, when the two parents are so much alike there are 
fewer differences to be highlighted?  

I'll continue planting them separately . . . just in case.  I've got some 
interesting things in the planning stage that would be ideal for more pod parent 
versus pollen parent investigations!  

I wish I knew as much about the genetics part of irises as you do Neil.  
Afraid I'm stuck with the equivalent of a kitchen counter science kit!  My rather 
large (for me) seedling patch.
