Thanks Rose, I'll put you into my folder for notifying you when the Puccini seedling will be introduced/released too. I sure hope when other hybridizers come across unusual seedlings they don't throw them out just because the form is not 'politically correct' or too few buds.  to me Irises are amazingly beautiful for the most part - - no matter the shape or form.
I'm so sorry to hear that there has been so many people's gardens affected by last weeks unusual/ out of the ordinary cold snaps.  You and Bill Wells too?  I know it's easy for me to say - - but, don't give up!!  :-)  
I've wondered how the AIS convention irises must look like at this stage?  I have some early blooming TB plicata seedlings guesting there and am almost betting they were wiped out.  Has anyone heard about the conditions in those guest gardens?

Margie I love the Puccini seedling, would love to grow it here in Missouri.  The form and coloration is very interesting and I for one love dark beards.  Would be a waste of good genetics not to put that into our gene pool, I think.  I really enjoy your photos and explanation of what you are looking for in your hybridizing.  The flounced seedling is nice, the purple/grey/yellow one is not to my liking but interesting in color combination. 
Thanks so much for posting, I am also in southern MO and like Connie and Bill Wells far to much of my garden has suffered such severe freeze damage I will have very limited bloom this year 8>(.  However I am pleased to say with moving all potted seedlings indoors and covering seedling beds with straw and tarps I did not lose a one.  Gives much home for the next 2 years.

A 'white flounced darkie'. (2 photos in this email) 
Part of my hybridizing program DOES INCLUDE (at times) using older named varieties to bring out (possibly) long lost traits, colors, or patterns. I've noticed that some irises with older forms have been introduced in the last 10-20 years due to their uniqueness
I'll surely try taking this one to the next level, but meanwhile it may be screaming to be introduced.  (funny thing - - I'm not even working with space age irises) Let me know what you think.
Consistent 3 white flounces on this. You may want to open your e-mail to full screen to see this.
