I second Loic's motion! It's not fair to keep them all to yourself! : )

Hello Donald
i'm sure someone would be delighted to introduce some of your best creations (then you woud be forced to register them...), among all the beauties you have shared with us, i would be embarassed to choose from.
I remember recently a pale blue that was heavenly....
Of course, you must delegate all the growing and selling, and only keep the fun bit!
It's precisely what i will do. Marianne Joosten, who is a professional breeder here is Holland, will deel with the "professional" bit, i will keep the creative part of the deal...!
Thanks for all these pretty pictures you have sent us, it has made the wait for spring more bearable!
 it will be soon our turn to make you forget the scorching blazing sun that will hit your area!

I'm not qualified to select and introduce an arilbred, much less a TB!
Nothing wrong with it from my perspective. TBs are wonderful and I
grow a lot, but TB seedlings take up space I could use otherwise.
Since I don't trash named/intro'd things (once maybe) they leave by not
surviving or being given away. Seedlings certainly die, but when I'm
digging something to give away, I give named/intro'd iris, not
seedlings. I haven't any inclination to introduce things, just
grow 'em. In the daubing area, it's pretty much ABs with only
occasional TBs.
