Yes, from what I have been told by other hybridizers, the pod parent must have variegated foliage . Less than 5% of the resulting seedlings will  have variegated foliage. This is what have found also.

When I first tried hybridzing years ago, I did manage to get a pod on pallida variegata, commonly called ZEBRA. I crossed it with an old diploid variety. The pod only produced 6 seeds and the none of the seedling were variegated, just my luck!

Okay, I see now. So if you have variegated parentage there is a chance you got some variegated offspring, right?
Can anybody explain me why Iris pa! llid 'Aureovariegata' doesn't set seed for me?
