HYB: First bloom (a maiden) purpureobractea hybrid

Well, the very first iris bloom opened yesterday here. It was a hybrid (can't remember the direction for this particular seedling) between Iris pupureobractea and a seedling of mine I call "PBF/RM".

You can see pictures of each of the parents at these links:

Iris purpureobractea


I thought it was interesting how each parent nearly canceled out the primary pigment of the other leaving a washed out combination of pale purple and pale yellow. I wonder how much variation the siblings and reverse cross seedlings will show. Stay tuned, more maiden stalks are on the way!
