Thank you so much for your comments, I really appreciate
Yes, that bright raspberry seedling was just opening, and
that is why the falls were up so high too. I liked this one too.
I'll have to examine it more closely in the spring to see if their is a possible
luminata/plicata pattern going on. I hope so.
The pinky-lavender seedling labeled VanSeedling-sm. is no
longer around. It had poor substance, and the sun would burn it.
Funny, because it's red sibling - holds up well.
Speaking of pale luminata-like veins - I'm going to be
posting a photo of Brazen Beauty in a few minutes. I was looking
at that iris this past spring and thought I saw some luminata
pattering going on in it. Tell me if you see it. If so, then maybe
Brazen Beauty is more than just a plicata.

Even with the wide range of colors, you can see a family resemblance to
all of these.
Crossing subjects here a bit, but that bright raspberry one appears to
have pale luminata-like veins, but with strong dark vein striping toward
the base more like plicata coloring. Thought a couple of the others
might show it too, but perhaps just lighting?
I like the bright coloring on this one, but the standards look a bit
poor, is that just because it is still opening?
I also really like the one in the groups shot that looks sort of pinky
lavender labeled VanSeedling -sm.JPG. I like the play of colors on that
