Margie, that is a
beautiful white iris. I wonder how
many seedlings can go the other way as they mature? Might an exquisite first year stalk with
lots of buds ever after fail to reach its first excellence? I wish I had room to let all of them
bloom two years. Perhaps I should
just separate out those I think are superior, plant them in a separate bed and
let the rest try again. A few of my
selected seedlings are growing like wild fire right now. I’m eager to see them bloom and a
little nervous. Will they be as
pretty this time?

(photo) white seedling in response to "garbage?"
Linda, here is a photo of that white
seedling last year - that I talked about ............ I regret not getting a
stalk pic of it. It's from a World Premier x Ecstatic Echo cross.
It went from a real "dog"
of an iris - to this - by just giving it another bloom season. I only wish
it had more ruffling to it.
