Every year Region 18 sponsors a Spring Regional Trek.  O'Fallon Iris is a local club that is hosting the 2008.  Riley and I are Iris chairs for this one.  We would so love to have one or the other or both of your seedlings to display to our group.  We think they are fantastic and people everywhere should see them.  If you would consent to send something to be seen send it to us.  We will have 4 gardens with about 150 people attending.  Your babies would get good notice.  We are hoping to get a seedling bed planted into which seedlings only would be planted, then at judges training they would be evaluated and a winner chosen.  Think about it and let us know.

Would love to see pics of the other iris that you speak of.

Thank you, Riley,


I hope to have both of those Purple Pirouette X Romantic Evening seedlings grown in guest gardens at the 2008 Austin AIS convention along with seven other of my favorite seedlings.   I may register them next year.  They are good irises, but neither is perfect.

Francelle, just saw the pic on the black seedling.  WOW WOW.  Beautiful.  Send more info.  How tall? how many buds?  Would you allow it to be shown as a seedling in slide shows.  You absolutely must keep it and maybe guest it out.

Here is a sibling of the black seedling I posted earlier.  It's shorter, lighter colored and produces lots of big blossoms on 33" stalks.  It definitely has the mahogany hafts.
