I have had multiple ones that were caused by weather and they are not consistent.  The genetic ones are few, but quite interesting.  I think this one that Margie has is really nice in apparence.  I grow full house, it is nice, but can't hold a candle to Grand canyon gold.  This one, GCG has a really nice appearance.
Have a great night all!

Hi Margie
Have you tested this any where else, if so does it still display 4 falls there ?   I always understood
this was weather related, although some irises do tend to be predisposed to doing this with cold

GRAND CANYON GOLD is the first Tall Bearded iris Introduced with the 4-4-4 factor. (that I am aware of). I am introducing it for the first time this year through Nola's Iris Garden. It too is genetic, not weather related.  Year after year it has displayed these qualities for me.  It occurs in the terminal bud about 75 - 80 and/or 90% of the time. It makes for a very well rounded and somewhat larger flower - taking irises to a new level.
First photo is taken from above - - showing part of a 2 years growth of GCG  ....................notice all the 4-4-4 irises. 
Below is a close-up of GRAND CANYON GOLD.
Grand Canyon Gold - A Novelty Iris - Terminal bud has the 4-4-4 factor and is perfectly balanced. The top bud only will bloom with the 4-4-4 factor and is consistent on 75-80% of all stalks. M,L.  35" tall.   9-11 buds. Nicely ruffled and a vigorous grower!  Nice branching & unusual coloring too. Note: the warmer the temps get - - the deeper the lavender wash becomes on it's falls as it opens! The cooler the temps are - the falls will likely resemble the standards in it's coloring.  Seedling # SHFOF 02-1.  (Sapphire Hills x Pencil Sketch) x Flights of Fancy.
