That type of pattern is due to cold when the bud was being formed.

Interesting. I have a few that were forming when we had 2 days of snow. Can't wait to see what comes out.

Broken color iris seem to do that "weird stuff" more often than the 'regular' ones

Isn't that called a *chimera* when coloration like that appears?

I just recently learned the term and I think that's right. Extra and fewer petals, too.

Yes, that is a classic chimera! Love the pink of the beards on the purple side.

Thank you, Mary Ann. I couldn't remember how to spell the term.
