Hi Laurie,

I don't know what causes the streaking in miniature dwarfs, especially.  We 
had some this year on ALPINE LAKE as well as a number of others, but not as 
heavily as on your clump of ALPINE LAKE.  It seems like the weather at the 
time the little ones are setting up their blooms has something to do with it. 
 Some years there is very little streaking.  You don't usually get this type 
of streaking on later blooming irises.  Don't worry about the picture--just 
wanted you to know that isn't the way it should look.
