to hear about the meltdown, but, I agree that MELTDOWN would be the perfect
name for this iris. Unless there
is something wrong with it in person that doesn’t show up in your picture, I
like it. A BC in a different color

color reblooming ugly seedling with hafts
one opened today and is still expanding. been working for wide, ruffled
reblooming BCs. I guess this qualifies, now to get something that is
pretty or at least something that doesn't cause revulsion. guess this one
would fit the "repell" category!
recovering from a hard drive/motherboard meltdown.
always just called them "haft markings" or "haft marks...along
the beard" or some such.
irises are enhanced by them. Others repell. It just depends on the
neatness and the biases of the viewer.
more extreme ones result from nearly solid "umbrata" fall overlays,
using the term Linda Mann has introduced. The opposite extreme of
"umbrata" are the butterfly wing veinings covering the fall.
The trait comes from *Iris variegata.* I suspect all expressions of the
markings you show are variations of the umbrata pattern.
umbratas are bitone, but this one seems to have such intense coloration in the
standards it comes off as a self. The amoena from Meek in a subsequent
post in response to yours has both the Progenitor "I-sub-s* inhibitor
*and* the umbrata, as do many of the very dark bitones and bicolors.
