Hi Linda,
You seem to be saying that if a cross has been made before crossing it again will result in the same iris.  This is not true.  Every seedling that comes from crossing two irises is a different and unique iris.  No matter how many times the cross is made, each seedling will be different.  Many of the seedlings will have similar characteristics, but will not be identical. We have crossed a tan/brown iris with a blue-green iris and got seedlings in a wide range of colors including tan, gold, greenish yellow, plicata, red-violet, blue-violet, white/yellow, all with different color beards.  So, if you are buying two irises from the same cross, you are buying two different irises.
