[PHOTO] Pixie Won....Funky Genes?

Here is 'Pixie Won,' a little plant about a foot tall, and a cross between
Iris pseudacorus and Iris ensata.

Now, I am proposing that this hybrid is probably genetically defective. Why
else would offspring of the thuggish pseudacorus and large-flowered Japanese
iris types produce a diminutive plant with foliage that looks...well...
piqued and pale, almost chlorotic? The plant actually grows vigorously. The
flowers are charming, colorful, and dainty, and people find them very
interesting when visiting my garden.

I've seen photos of other hybrids of this type, and I have noticed that
flower markings are often rather similar. Does anyone grow one that is of
'normal' size and plant makeup?
