Linda, regarding the question of "red" about Lycopene, I enclose the following to illustrate what I have said on Iris-talk in response to the companion thread to this one.
This seedling is from Lotus Land  X (P 1-9:Swingtown x Romantic Evening), and is numbered tentatively
R 60-yel3
This seedling, with its missing standard, displays a very red beard simply because it contains both Lycopene as intensely as a beard can, and a slight influence of violet pigment, showing in the fall just at the edge of the beard, cooling the "hot" color of Lycopene to something very close to spectrum red in the same manner as suggested by Don Spoon.
The blue beard of Swingtown is expressed intensely in P 1-9 (a sib to POWER WOMAN) and carries over into this seedling in a delicate tone. 
The array of sibs is fascinating, the majority having a red-violet tone, some rather rough, one a quite good flower, although the form is a little out of date.  Then there is one seedling with disasterously awful form, but utterly fascinating color.  The standards are light violet with a rim of rose (the result of orange-pink or warm yellow banding of the standard), and the falls are red violet with a blue beard.  Not only is the flower laced, but it just glows with color.  If only!  That form is ugly and ruins the effect.
