Hi Linda,
'Sly Fox' is a pure white and will easily throw yellows (I've used SF in other crosses in the past and have gotten a majority of yellows from it). Lady Celesta is a very pale blue. I don't think I suspect different pollen parents so much, ......as much as I DO wonder where that yellow spot and/or wide honey ringed pattern comes from on the yellow sibling. Any thoughts?

I've been busy shading my irises from this 107-109 degree heat we've been having. After the rains.....comes the hot sun and the wet soil begins to boil and cause rot. <sigh>

Margie, except for color, those irises look similar enough to me to be
sibs. With one "pink" parent, seems reasonable to me to get this range
of color from the same pollen parent.

Of course similarity is hard to judge from the photos - is the
difference in color what makes you suspect different parents.

Any reason to think there isn't pink or yellow lurking in LADY CELESTA,
hidden by dominant white?

trying to get used to having soil moisture in the summer again! My
house has been eaten by jungle, not to mention the irises.
