is a sibling of the Barbara My Love X Cast of Characters seedling that I posted
a couple of days ago. B had a shorter
stalk with fewer buds and less vigorous growth than A, but I really liked its
form and colors. I only had five from
that cross. One I did not like, so its gone. Two didn’t
bloom last spring, but since I want to see them, they got moved away from their
vigorous sibling. I hope they bloom this
I haven’t made any more crosses with BYL,
but I have just planted seeds from several I made with Cast of Characters as
the pollen donor. Pod parents are
Happenstance, Life of Riley, Pond Lily and Polish Princess and only four seeds
from Lady Friend. I feel that CoC passes
on its extravagant ruffles.

I'm wondering if there is
anyone else who used Barbara
My Love as a parent in their crosses too. (using
a "Keeping it in the family" theme so to speak.)
If so - - it would be interesting to
see what some other offspring from this parent looks like.

What a bright Iris to light up a
cold rainy day for OC.
