Also.................. I was thrilled to find out that my seedling SCxS
034-1M won Best seedling and an EC award too. I posted this one
The wonderful thing is - - that particular seedling is
not blooming yet for me, but I gave my friend Kathy Chilton one to grow
last year and it was blooming for her in time for the show today. If it
wasn't for her - - that iris would not have been seen at the show
today. Thank you Kathy.
The TAIS iris show was a little earlier than most years, AND our
bloom season is slow getting started this year due to a cooler Feb. and March
than normal. It's hard to show seedlings at the show when
they are not blooming come show time. :-) Wish they were all
It is usually triple socketed. Last year it had 9 buds.
Todays' show iris had 7 buds.
Here is todays indoor photo against a black prop.
Here is another photo of it last year - not posted on iris photos before.
