Thank you, for your comments, Linda.  The two big rows of seedlings were pollinated in the spring of 2001, germinated in pots and planted in March 2002.  This is their second bloom.  I lost a year of hybridizing due to planting a guest bed for last year’s regional convention.  I must select a few now to line out this fall.  So far, I’ve selected way too many.  All irises are pretty!

Very lovely, Francelle.  Makes me want to grab a chair and go sit and
stare at them.

When you say two year seedlings, do you mean they were from pods two
years ago this spring?

ground last fall.  In between is a
