It appears that you can have the AVI with or without presence of dissolved anthrocyanin in cell vacuole. I have seen this in standards of Ziggy. It gives the yellow a mustardy dark toned to yellow .

Subject: [iris] HYB: question - Ae in non-black irises

Chuck, this question is mostly for you - does the presence of Ae in
non-black irises give the blooms a noticeably different look?

I mean a bloom with the genetics for Ae, but without the presence of the anthocyanin pigment(s). Are the granules there, just colorless? Or are
they only present if the pigment is present?

If the granules are there, but don't have pigment, do they have an
optical effect that is visible?

The reason I ask - it would really be nice to know if, for example, a
white or yellow bloom carries the genes for Ae, to recapture
'black'/dark purple by crossing back to heavily pigmented purple.

Lots of color and pattern out there, but still mostly pastel from all
the Immortality, Celebration Song, Renown, and Treasured influence.
