Good work, Linda!
It looks nice, too, and matches it's name per your photo with the message. Great!
You're looking for 50 rhizomes, huh? Well, you could plant the 30 you got sent back to you, and next year you would have 60 or more (except in north-east Michigan where first-year-transplants don't necessarily multiply until their second year).
Also, you could send some to the Region 6 2014 spring meeting in Indiana for another garden tour/evaluation ... Chuck Bunnell is the RVP accepting the rhizomes.
Happy for you!

And now I have ~30 rhizomes returned from the CA convention. Should I
offer to give them to all my iris-talk & iris-photos friends who have
helped me over the past 15+ years get to this point in my breeding
Should I line them out here in iris hell?
Should I quick try to figure out how to slap together a website offering
it for sale?
I presume it's too late in the year to try to find somebody to market it
I'm posting this both in photos and iris-talk, since we seem to have
slightly different groups.
