Re: question for S.A. iris growers

Hi Vicki,

Your photo looks like it may have a slight raised beard spine with some
beard hair attached to it. Some would suggest that your seedling has
at least some SA genes, but not enough to produce a horn. Lloyd Austin
selfed a similar looking bloom to eventually come up with his first
horned intro, UNICORN.

Crossing this seedling with a cultivar with no SA ancestry would likely
yield no SA traits but crossing it with a horned seedling may
significantly increase your chances and percentages of SA seedlings
from the group of seedlings, maybe even spoons and flounces.

There's a fantastic article in the files section at the SA Robin
written by Lloyd Austin. Please read it and experiment to satisfy your
curiosity. The subject of SA genetics is nubulous to say the least.
