Subject: [iris-photos] Re: Sheriffa
I realize that the 1949 Check List says
"(oncobred)" in C. G. White's 1941 entry, but is Sheriffa not from a
regelia cross rather than oncocyclus? From its appearance it suggests
*Iris stolonifera* coloring. If *stolonifera* is one of the parents the
hybrid would be an arilbred, more specifically a "regeliabred."
It may be important to realize our current
terminology dates from much later than 1941. The language we use now to
describe aril hybrids is quite recent in its development.
