Subject: [iris-photos] PHOTO: new AB: 'Glittering Garnets' (Eaves)
I had to laugh at Donald's entry in which he showed a photo of a small arilbred that was a guest iris in his garden and said that guest iris made him nervous because he felt responsible for them. Well, several years ago, Donald sent me 2 seedlings of his, both from the same cross, and one of them expired that first winter. Gasp! The second seedling from the cross ('Anacrusis' X 'Desert Plum') loved my garden and increased well. With Donald's permission, I have named it and registered it for him. It is now 'Glittering Garnets', whose coloring reminded me of all the shades of garnets found in the Garnet Creek area when I was a boy. Below is its photo.
