Genetically, RE is, among several other things, an "Umbrata"--to use Linda Mann's term for the fall-overlay pattern probably derived primarily, but not exclusively, from *Iris variegata.* 

I do not know much about the "umbrata" as a pattern or even if it actually is a pattern. It is unlikely I will spend much time beyond here attempting to dechiper my reservation/understanding/misunderstanding/ or concern. Heretofore it seemed to have been used to discribe an absence of color and a spot of color. To my eyes Romantic Evening has neither.

Does your post refer to it being a genetic carrier of the trait? With color? Without color? A carrier of both at the same time?

Alway perplexed and a lot slow.
