This seedling is the best I've grown so far for purple foliage characteristics, but its flowers have terrible form. It's a diploid (24 chromosome type) from a cross of two KUPARI pallida seedlings - one selected for good purple bases (from ROSEMARY'S DREAM) and the other for good leaf margin color (from Iris suaveolens var. rubromarginata).

I haven't been using this one in any crosses because of the flower form issues, but have been using a sibling instead that has much better form but a little less foliage color.
