I hate to have to say this but Clyde Redmond is cornflower
blue. That aside, your purple iris may carry white genes, insufficient in
the parent to turn the purple off, but they may have doubled up in the offspring
to work as a dominant white suppressing the purple.

My very first seedling! This is from a beepod on Clyde
Redmond, a dark purple Louisiana iris. I really wasn't excited when I found
the bud on this one. Clyde Redmond was the only LA iris I had at the time so I
expected "just another purple iris". Imagine my surprise when I found this. I
am assuming that LA iris cannot cross with TB's?
