Nice work Robin!
i am jealous!
I've pollinated every single flower on Pagan Dance last spring, and have daubed it's pollen on everything with a spot, but got not one single pod!!!
And even if Off Lee Nice, Plum Pretty Whiskers and Remembering Elvie, from Pagan Dance, have been registered , i had given up on it!
Will try again, now i know YOU got it work with Wearing Rubies' pollen!!!!!

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: for Pumilla spot pattern - Pagan Dance seedlings

I have been following the discussions on pumilla spots, and Loic mentioned Pagan Dance.  I did get some seedlings Wearing Rubies X Pagan Dance which I do think would be of interest in this pursuit.  Have been thinking that I need to use Pagan Dance more on as I have bloomed so many Wearing Rubies seedlings that I believe Pagan Dance to be the more likely source.
The lighter seedling was still alive going into winter, the darker seedling is possibly lost to freeze damage this spring.  This spring promises to be interesting- if just to see what did survive.
Looking at the photos of the cross, there may have been two more with some variation of the pattern.  These seedlings are not introducible by any stretch of the imagination, but will be used to see if I can't work with the pattern and get improved form and branching- and rebloom-of course. 
Has anyone else bloomed anything from Pagan's Dance?
