My assumption of I(s) (Bill suggested this as an alternative to "I-
sub-s" and I find it an excellent suggestion) being present 
in 'Romantic Evening' is not based on color contrast of the fall 
margin with standard color.  There appear to be pigment(s) present 
that are not affected by the 'Progenitor' factor, presumably derived 
ultimately from some forms of *Iris aphylla,*-- at least that is the 
The assumption of the factor's presence is based on progenies, not 
phenotype (visual appearance)of RE.  Two amoenas, one solid and eight 
bitones out of eleven seedlings bloomed from the cross of 'Great 
Gatsby' X 'Romantic Evening suggest each parent provided one dose of 
the factor.  I doubt very much both factors came from RE.

Ascribing a dose of I(s) to 'Great Gatsby' flies in the face of the 
published pedigree.  The flower is, however, a distinct bitone rather 
like those of the 'Melodrama' type.  I do not think it has 
an "umbrata" fall overlay.
