Dana, there is no deadline. It is just a bit of research I am doing and trying to learn. Perhaps a goal for hybridizing!!! Will the seedling be available?

I have pictures of a seedling with purple bracts.  Unfortunately, it is at home and I am on my way to Tennessee.  Is Monday too late?

Thanks Colleen I will add Double Vision to my list. It is sad that this trait is not always recorded in the checklists, but perhaps that is because it is somewhat dependent on cold sunny weatherto develop.

Hi Robert

Don't have a photo of it, but Double Vision has purple stems and bracts.

Its bad to have poor recall but I trust the collective memory of this group can help me. I remember seeing TBs with purple bracts below their flowers but cannot remember the cultivar names. Does anyone know about these and have photos I could use in the Iris Encyclopedia? I know the species I. purpureobracteata has this character but I am looking for the TB hybrids that developed this independent of that species. Can anyone help?
