I would have to say that the statments about gentics and what should or should not apear seem somewhat nieve.  While yellow cross yellow have a higher chance of producing yellow there are no guidelines to say it must produce yellow.  If there were very simple formulas for these things then everyone would have the perfect iris of the perfect color and form that we are always looking for.
Genetics be it human or plants are always a crap shoot and can recess backwards many generations or even make a step forward.

I'm very interested in more details of crosses of Sly Fox producing
yellows. If crossed to something that is yellow it would be expected to
produce yellows. But in a cross to something that doesn't have yellow
it should not produce yellows.

A yellow from Sly Fox X Lady Celeste is a mystery. As reduction of
yellow is supose to be a recessive, none from this cross should have

Ther have been rumours of a dominant yellow repression gene , but no
clear evidence of it's exsistence.

By the way, there is no "dominant White" gene. There is a dominant
repression of anthocyanin gene, but it has no effect on inheritence of

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 thou
