is a iris neighbor (drive less than 1 hour to his garden). One day a few
years ago I got a lengthy private tour of his iris garden and seedlings.
Unfortunately I did not know enough at the time to understand all that I was
told. Fred calls the banded falls the "Emma Cook" pattern. It has been one
of his major hybridizing lines.

Chuck, thank you. I did think dominant
amoena-plus was what I was seeing in the photo.
Shoop-by-Keppel's 'Last Laugh' is very similar in
pattern. Neither it nor 'Seakist' have the extreme _expression_ shown in
Fred Kerr's banded-fall irises, but are on the same track from their
appearance, just not as far down it, so to speak.
