Broken Color

Broken color has become such a popular color pattern that perhaps it should not be included as a novelty any more. It should not be confused with irises that show streaking due to virus. The trait is not well understood but a few selected hybridizers have developed some spectacular plants. We are attempting to develop a list below of Irises with this trait. Please add any that have been missed by commenting in the comment box.
