was different on these plum colored ones was a consistent wire edge of
paper-sack tan on the edge of the falls and standards.
Did this edge contain a metalic glint? You need to take a hard look a crossing this seedling with Merle Roberts' WIDDERSHINS. While a few more metallic filligreed irises are appearing now, they are still pretty rare. More importantly though WIDDERSHINS has proved itself capable of passing on the trait. See his seedling 97-96A at
With the the beauty of your seedling in this photo as well as the second seedling you posted, I can see nothing but greatness coming from such a cross reguardless of the resulting ground color.
Never short of opinion and again finding myself envious results achieved by others,
