Griff, I really like the one that shows in the middle here--ruffled
white with a yellow fall band. It looks like an improved 'Total
Recall.' Does it rebloom like TR? Is it something you plan to

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

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 ;-) )
