Linda, I suggest you send an email to Kathy Chilton.  In Arizona she will know what is and isn't colorfast.  They frequently have spring weather in the high 90s and low 100s.

Her email address is on the Reg. 15 site.

Thanks for the offer, Griff, but I think I'm getting some seedlings that
will fill the bill, just trying to learn about the topic, re: heredity.

Parts of the country where bleaching of yellow is a more common problem
must be busy with bloom right now or can't answer my questions. I'll
try asking again later.

You know of any hybridizers working with dark yellow/gold irises who I
might ask? Schreiner's has some now and then, recently HERE COMES THE
SUN (2007), but it didn't get enough hot sun here to know how sunfast it

I would like to know because I have a really vigorous non-sunfast thing
with big brilliant gold blooms that I'd like to use for breeding <if> I
knew what to expect, what might or might not work to overcome the
bleaching problems.

May be a moot question - wasn't fertile either way this year.
