Blocher 223, Louise Watts sib

means that this was seedling 223 hybridized by someone named Blocher.
AND the seedling was a sibling of the iris LOUISE WATTS.

More often written
Blocher 223: Louise Watts sib

I like to write cultivar names in all capital letters because it is less
confusing - in this case, Blocher 223, LOUISE WATTS sib would have made
it more obvious that Blocher was a person and LOUISE WATTS the name of
an iris.

Hope that helps. You are on the right track - start in the middle,
where there are two irises that don't have any () between them, then
work your way out. In really complicated pedigrees, I sometimes use
colors like you did to help sort it all out.

Have you seen the pedigree charts on the World of Iris or other
websites? Sometimes charting makes it easier to figure out; sometimes
it just causes a lot of scribbled mess <g>
