more broken color

The cross is GREENAN CASTLE X TATAI PASHA. Broken color shows up fairly
often in a TBxAB. I suppose the unbalanced chromosomes make for a bad fit
resulting in the effect. This bloom also shows other characteristics of the
type cross. The lines under the beard and the shriveled anther that doesn't
produce pollen are typical results. Also, typically, it so far has shown no
propensity for setting seeds. But the yellow dominance of TP over the
pinkish orange of the pod parent fits well with the discussion of orange
inheritance over on IrisTalk. The end result does not really resemble
either parent and that is also the case most of the time.
