Hello Bill,

> Can anybody confirm or refute the ID of this one?

I'm inclined to think it's not TABRIZ.  I posted a photo 4/04 that's 
in the archives.  If you compare it I think you'll see why.  Your 
photo doesn't show the fine veining in the standards and falls and the 
form is different.  Can't be sure, of course, but it just doesn't look 
right based on how it bloomed for me.

I think Christy is correct that it's weather related.  Those plants 
that have a tendency to show the markings tend to have them 
considerably more pronounced when the weather has been cool and 
moist.  In dry, warmer seasons there aren't many to see.  It wasn't 
notable here this year at all.  I've also noted that when they do 
occur, the whole bloom otherwise has richer colors.  It's sure more 
extreme in some cultivars than in others.  Even a very few TBs can 
show it, but it's always the same ones.  I don't think it's a virus, 
but an effect of weather causing the color pigments to show up in that 
manner.  My opinion.  Sometimes I find it objectionable and sometimes 
an enhancement depending on the cultivar.  Works great on JAZZ BABY.
