Re: TB- Seedling


If both parents have good bud count , then plant has good genetics. Low
bud count may not be a problem in future years. And plant has the
genetis of good bud count, just not displayed. First year or two
doesn't show plants true potential. When breeding look for the great
traits in a seedling, ans work it to improve it's weak points by
carefully selecting parents with similar traits to what you are
working on.

Look at pedigres of Ghio and Keppel iris, particularly the great ones.
You often find pedigrees that go back four or more generation of
seedlings. You can bet all these seedlings had some great traits plus
a serious fault that preculded them being introduced, but they were
worked with to get rid of faults and keep good stuff. Use these as
examples of what you need to do

Griff , -  Thanks for the encouragement . I hope that the yellow /
black red improves next year . If it keeps getting 4 buds & poor
branching I would hate to keep passing those gene's onto other
seedlings . The other tw
o already have the bud count & nice branching 
, just need to tweak the flower form a little .
