Hi Mary,  Neighbor's property contains commercial vines that produce 
shiraz grapes. Not even certain they use Roundup to control weeds. 
Have been told they may be using a product known here as "Sprayseed". 
Roses planted nearby are being stressed by herbicide. Assume that my 
irises may also suffer. Overspraying fine mist in very low volumes  
this may be why the plants do not die.Blooms that are now emerging as 
white still retain some purple coloring on sections of the bloom. 
Anyone out there explain in simple terms how irises develop new forms 
naturally as I am not biologically trained. Thankyou for your reply
