I think the red-purple with the fine white dots could be a real winner for you!!!   There are irises that have white backgrounds with purple spots.  But, your iris (if crossed with itself) has the potential to produce the first ever iris with a solid colored (red-purple) iris with WHITE SPOTS!  (I'm assuming of course that - there is a possibility those spots may double in size)
Francelle.............. if you decide you don't want this iris - I'll be happy to work with it.  But, If I were you - I'd keep it and work with that possibility in mind.  Best of luck to you!

People who fall in love at first sight often fall out of it after a few good looks.  Someday I hope to refrain from posting pictures of seedlings until I have grown them for a few years.


The two-tone pink that rewarded my early rising last week melted in the hot sun by the end of the day.


The red-purple seedling posted yesterday is found to have fine white dots on all of its falls that detract from the flower.  Oh well, no one said it was easy to find a perfect seedling.


The Pond Lily X Purple Pirouette cross only had two that survived the die off of 2002.  Both are lovely, both flawed.  I think I will try that cross again if I can find those two blooming at the same time.  This is the second time PP babies have had those bright yellow beards.

Nice rich color Francelle.  I enjoy looking at your seedlings.

This one has made the first cut with me this year.  I like its color and its bright yellow beards.  It?s from Pond Lily X Purple Pirouette.
