Re: haft question - AB seedling

> It looks like your seedling is a carrier of the dominant anthocyanin 
inhibitor gene, or "I-Gene".   Irises carrying this gene will be 
white, yellow, pink or orange (carotene pigment) with little or no 
purple anthocyanin pigment in the hafts or elsewhere.

If it's dominant, then it should be apparent in one of the parents, 
shouldn't it?  It's not going to be the AB parent, DESERT MOONLIGHT.  
That leaves the TB, ROYAL TARA as the carrier.  Didn't bloom this 
year, but I guess looking at my photo it could be.  Also, RT has MARY 
McCLELLAN as the pollen parent and it's an even purple and RT is a 
cream.  But RT still has sort of greenish yellow lines on the 
shoulders and a lavender tipped beard.  What would happen if I used it 
again as a pod parent, but used a purple AB as the pollen parent?  
Would the "I-Gene" be dominant enough to more or less eliminate the 
anthocyanin from seedlings that inherited the gene?  Or do aril genes 
always work exactly the same when matched with TB genes?
