HYB: Pink genetics

I have been reading with great interest and a tiny bit of understanding the genetic explanations of the relationships of white, pink and anthocyanin pigmentation.  My main hybridization goal is the development of unique, vigorous pink and pink blend TB irises.  I have been surprised at how often I get white irises from my crosses which are nicer formed and more vigorous growers than their pink siblings.


I am posting three unrelated seedlings that I hope to cross with each other to see what I get.  Each has SA genes, and might provide useful information for the SAGE project.  65-25 A is from Mesmerizer X Pink Champagne.  It is not SA, but it is a rebloomer.  When fresh, the standards are lavender.  Would this make it some kind of dark top since the anthocyanine is expressed there but not in the falls?


12-18 A is from Elegant Girl X Happenstance.  It has a very light pink tint and big red beards.  I believe the beards end in small fuzzy horns making it SA.  What might happen if I cross it with 65-25 A which has better form?


67-22 B is from Pond Lily X Twice Thrilling.  It is obviously SA, and has lavender in the standards and the horns which project from red beards.  Both parents have considerable anthocyanine in their blended pink.  I have absolutely no idea what might turn up if I can cross it with the other two.


This sure becomes a lot of fun.


I might understand all the T and t genes better if I can relate them to my own babies.
