{Disarmed} RE: HYB: Black seedling

I might reacquire Hello Darkness to cross with this one.  Hello Darkness bloomed here for four years.  I really liked it even though it was always a weak plant and eventually bloomed out.  31-52 B is taller, 36 to 38 inches and a strong grower.  The branching and bud count are adequate, but it sometimes produces a crooked stalk.  I would like to get rid of that trait.  This is its third year to bloom.  I babied Dusky Challenger for five years and never got one decent flower from it, and it’s been the number one favorite iris on the Symposium for years.  I could scream!  This was my first year to have Ozark Rebounder.  It didn’t bloom this spring and it’s clump doesn’t look vigorous either.

Francelle  --  Your seedling has the richness of color that I would expect from Romantic Evening, but the very ruffled form must be from Purple Pirouette.   Congratulations on getting both.  Maybe you can improve the heat-hardiness of some other very modern blacks by crossing them with this one  --  if they live long enough to make the cross!  --  Griff

This is 31-52B, Purple Pirouette X Romantic Evening.  It’s darker than either parent and the only black iris I’ve ever had that grows well and blooms without burning in my garden.  I’ve no idea what it would do any place else.
