Here is my best close-up of Renown.
You can see it bigger there:

<<Renown also has four sets of "recessive reduction " of carotene.>>

Spring of 2009 I took these pictures of RENOWN.

What pigment/pigments are we seeing on the haft of RENOWN?

My work with RENOWN is new and very limited. For me, most crosses have
produced 20 or less seed per pod, and germination has been minimal.
(Sweet Musette x Memphis Miss) X Renown (20 seed) produced 3 first year
germinants and 1 second year germinant. Two lavender to the rosy side,
one much darker with reddish hues. The fourth hasn't bloomed yet.
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 carotene" genes.

Renown also has four sets of "recessive reduction " of carotene. Thus
all seedlings of HoM X Renown will have four sets of "rrc" .

If one of seedlings was cream, I would check solubility of the cream
pigment. Perhaps it is a water soluble pigment. It is not likely an
alternative yellow. But there is still more to learn about all this.

There are about 14 seedlings from this cross in this age group (~half a

dozen younger, not big enough to bloom yet).

So far, 3 have bloomed, 2 were white, one had cream or yellow, but

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 least another

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?

I didn't inspect the first seedling closely, but the photo (non-glamor

shot attached) shows yellowish brownish (i.e., yellow plus anthocyanin)

veins on the hafts and strong yellow/gold beard. The one currently

blooming, has no yellow visible except distinctive color - pale (almost

greenish?) yellow beard in the throat. May not be alternate yellow

pigment, but is an alternate looking shade of yellow ;-). I will see if

my upside down camera trick can capture it.

HoM occasionally gives t beards in crosses with pinks. I think I've

seen two - one from CSONG, one from PINK QUARTZ. So I think that means

it has regular yellow as well?

When you asked about "shoulders", Donald, I assumed you meant the

shoulder patch that some irises have (i.e., GOLD BURST type) which my

own pet theory is that it's genetically related to yellow fall spot

pattern, <not> the yellow or pink version of the anthocyanin variegata

type spot.

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

alternate yellow question.
