The Space Agers came from somewhere.  It seems like I saw some from the 20's or 30's.  It was probably ignored or thrown away as "wrong" just like the hybridizers threw away the rebloomers for many years.  of course they interferred with their sales shipping period and SA would not have affected that.  So, probably just ignored.
Have fun with it and see what happens.  It could be a neat breaktrough no one else has done anything with.

Hello Jan,
It's funny that you noticed that. I didn't realize
that the picture showed it, but I noticed that just
yesterday myself. This is the second year blooming for
this seedling. Last year, I was so interested in its
color, size and form, that I hadn't noticed the little
rudimentary extensions (I hesistate to call them horns
because they are so small). But yesterday, I noticed
them. There is definitely something raised up
underneath the end of the beard. I pollinated this
flower with pollen from the large plicata (in the
bottom blurry picture). I think this plicata had a
purple line on the fall extending from the beard -- I
know some of them did. Maybe some of the offspring
will have the purple and extensions.
In any case, I haven't really gotten into Space Age
irises much. But, it might be interesting to see how
the genetics would work out at this diploid level.
