Thanks, Griff! I'm getting a few late stalks and some remnants of other
stalks. A handful of stalks lost their tops and are now blooming a
couple of blooms on the lower branches that remain. When you compare it
to the number of stalks I had and should have had, the percentage is
less than .01% Not that it will help much with temperatures reaching
84 + degrees.

Three pods may have survived (or not) on some SDBs and now I've done a
couple TB crosses today. Not expecting much.

I had one week of TB season before the destruction. All crosses made
during that time were destroyed.

Itâs a late bloomer, Betty, and not a rebloomer. Iâm watching it for
bud count. No crosses, so far. Hope youâve been able to salvage more
from the weather than first appeared. -- Griff

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 ;-) )
