From AIS Bulletin #272 January 1989 Introducing ANGEL'S STAR-Sdlg. LH 87-20. AR (onco), 12". A slide of this iris was shown at the Oklahoma AIS convention in 1988, and many were anxious to know what I had named it. The name I had chosen had been taken, so please note the seedling number. The metallic red-brown self flower has an orange glow in the sun, and the bright yellow style arms compliment the yellow blaze around the dark maroon signal. The yellow blaze is sprinkled with a dotting of dark maroon, (Babylonian Brass X Brown Prince) X (LH 82-20 x Desert Yellow). $15.00. Pleasure Iris Gardens.
ASI Official Checklist. Here is what it indicates about bracketed letters, In this notation, the fertile families of aril and arilbred irises have chromosome configurations of AA (diploid arils), AAAA (tetraploid arils), AAPP (amphidiploid-like aril pumila hybrids) and AATT (amphidiploid-like arilbreds, such as the C. G. White fertile arilbreds and their descendants). All other configurations are expected to have limited fertility at best. These include the "Mohr type" quarterbreds (ATTT), the OGB+ triploids (AAT), arilbred medians from SDB x AB crosses (APTT), and arilbred dwarfs from SDB x aril crosses (APT). PP indicates an irises that has some demonstrated fertility as a pollen parent; SP indicates one that has some demonstrated fertility as a seed parent
