 easier to get this cross today, using the modern tetraploids.>>

The original pallida was called EDINA. You can see a photo of what we believe 
is this iris on the HIPS page. I really don't know enough about genetics to 
speculate further, Dennis. I am only reporting what my best understanding to 
date has been. Perhaps someone expert about that aspect of things will 
enlighten us. I'd adore to find the PALTEC cross was a gimme. I've been 
wanting to try a batch of Dykes' MOONLIGHT and white tectorums for some time. 
<< Anner, I loved your comment about tectorum being an "idiot's delight" to
 germinate.  I'm trying it for the first time just now when I received a
 package of Iris tectorum alba seeds.  It will be interesting to see if they
 are truly white, or lavendar like Dr. Z's.>>

Mais oui. Soak them for three to five days, sow them on the surface of moist 
vermiculite or seedling mix, press in gently but do not cover seeds with 
medium, cover whole pot with saran, place in warm room near but not in a 
sunny window, keep moist but not wet, expect germination in ten days to two 
weeks. No chill needed. Any that mold at the umblicus are dead and should be 
removed with tweezers. I start mine inside in mid February and with moving 
them up into progressively larger pots have multifanned plants to set out in 
the fall. Bloom the next year. It does not get any easier. 

<< For a brief moment I thought IDIOT'S DELIGHT would be a cute name for an
 iris.  but then I realized it's actually an insult to the person that likes
 that iris!  I couldn't imagine a Dyke's winner being called that.  <g!>>>

A phrase of my mother's, actually. Probably not very PC, now that I think 
about it, nor kind, but instantly recognizable....
