Maybe with XXX-rays?

I know, bad joke! ;)

Here's a question:

I know the iris is actually a genus, and there are many species of irises. I would assume you can cross different species of irises, that's how we got all the variations. But can you cross an iris with a rose? If not, what is their theory on this.

The reason I ask is I grew up around farms in the midwest, and worked in a corn seed company for a while (quite interesting, we actually did the field work of self and cross-pollination). But the corn never pollinated the soy beans or the alfalfa just across the road, though the pollen would have traveled to them.

Well, if a banana can mate with a bird . . .

I'm not an expert on pollination but I believe that beyond their "pollination syndrome" plants have chemical signaling pathways that prevent intra-generic pollination (ie rose pollen lands on iris stigma - nothing happens).

On a side note: In my part of the world, the wild irises hybridize so commonly it can be infuriating (impossible) to try to key them to species.
What did the parasitic Candiru fish say when it finally found a host? - - "Urethra!!"

I must admit I love to see AFJ's posts here despite the fact that we disagree with most of the stuff. When compared to this gamila-spambot you can really see the difference between an intelligent person and a dimwit repeating himself over and over again without contributing anything into the ongoing debate. Luckily retardness is not contagious, else gamila might cause a real bad epidemic...

Gamila, Dean's paradox has already been resolved in my post about changing the wavelength of a light ray, but you have refused to answer it.

That's not the point and you know it.
