That yellow is striking! It reminds me of the historic iris Easter Time.
I enjoy your posts. thank you!


Linda -- In my experience, this one would probably only give you a modicum of increased breadth, and, with no more ruffling, would leave you with an iris little changed in form from the seedling that you have. I would go for a cross with much broader, rounder, flared and ruffled falls. I think it takes a fairly radical difference in the cross to get an appreciable change in the shape of the progeny. Iâve attached a few examples. -- Griff

Maiden bloom yellow:(HoM x TREASURED) X pink: ((7IMMxCSONG) X TREASURED).

Griff, is this one broad enough? ;-) No ruffles, but it got some pollen
from the yellow one posted earlier. Would have preferred to use the
healthier yellow as pod parent, but didn't get the chance. Yet. Foliage
on this one really took a hit from the freeze, plus a bit leaf spot
susceptible. Not as bad as some, but not what I'd like to see.

Fans on this one only have 4 or 5 leaf blades, so if Chuck is right,
this one might be a rebloomer. (may as well pretend ;-) )
