(Sweet Musette x Memphis Miss) X Renown (20 seed) produced 3
germinants and 1 second year germinant. Two lavender to the
one much darker with reddish hues. The fourth hasn't bloomed
Treasured X Renown (20 seed) produced ONE very nice seedling--reverse
very pale yellow with just a hint of lavender.

A speculation on the results.
Judging by results of
offspring of HoM it would seem as if it has four
sets of the recessive
genes for alternative yellow, and four sets of
the recessive "reduction of
Renown also has four sets of "recessive reduction " of
all seedlings of HoM X Renown will have four sets of "rrc"
If one of seedlings was cream, I would check solubility of the
pigment. Perhaps it is a water soluble pigment. It is not likely
alternative yellow. But there is still more to learn about all

There are about 14 seedlings from this cross in this age group
dozen younger, not big enough to bloom yet).
So far, 3
have bloomed, 2 were white, one had cream or yellow,
flowers on a 6 inch tall stalk and got beaten to pieces by
9 inches of
rain, and I didn't get a photo or look closely at it. At
2 are making stalks - depending on first frost date, may
or may not get
to see them this fall. 5 or more/14 = ~1/3?
didn't inspect the first seedling closely, but the photo
shot attached) shows yellowish brownish (i.e., yellow plus
veins on the hafts and strong yellow/gold beard. The one
blooming, has no yellow visible except distinctive color -
greenish?) yellow beard in the throat. May not be
pigment, but is an alternate looking shade of yellow
;-). I will see if
my upside down camera trick can capture
HoM occasionally gives t beards in crosses with pinks. I think
seen two - one from CSONG, one from PINK QUARTZ. So I think that
it has regular yellow as well?
When you asked about
"shoulders", Donald, I assumed you meant the
that some irises have (i.e., GOLD BURST type) which my
own pet theory
is that it's genetically related to yellow fall spot
<not> the yellow or pink version of the anthocyanin
Did you mean that type of solid "blush" of
yellow or the yellow
plus anthocyanin) haft veins that
Chuck is talking about?
Either way, I dunno.
This year, one of
the few successful crosses was HoM X an orange
seedling. If enough of
them live and bloom, that might answer the
gorgeous fall weather - 49oF
