Those are true beauties........... I especially like 1501M. It also sounds like a real winner!

Subject: [iris-photos] other seedlings

There was a request for me to show a few seedlings from a cross that I may not necessarily introduce, but perhaps might show more of the spread from a cross....I thought that I would include more from the group that I posted just a few images before....These are from the cross 1501  (Celsius x (Chanted x Fairy Lore)) 
One of my goals is to get a blue bearded pink plicata that reblooms....Fairy Lore, being an almost pink plicata to my eyes, would sometimes rebloom for me so I started here.  I added the blue beard of Chanted and got 9709-2C a pink ground blue bearded SDB with purple fall area and pink rim....Barry Blyth has said that although he doesn't especially look for rebloom in his seedlings sometimes he would find it.  I have a hunch (and that's all it is) that chanted has some abilities here as I've gotten quite a few seedlings that do rebloom from it.  It may be a rebloom carrier and it is one of the best parent clones around.  With Barry telling us in his catalogue that Celsius gives good things, I made a cross with it to  this seedling, just to see, also knowing it would strengthen the blue beard....It was the best cross of the year for me in the surprise department....Here are a few from that cross that I have crossed to some of my reblooming seedlings.....1501-M  is the one that I have a real feeling for. Mostly because it has a wonderful branch, three buds and it also shot up four bloomstalks on the first year bloom....It was also very fertile....Paul
