Loic - the hybridizer is Phil Cook, my neighbor up here in the northern
reaches of New England bordering Quebec. I think this was his first
introduction but I am not sure. I first saw it at the Japanese Iris
mini-convention two or three years ago. It was in the auction at the final
dinner when the name was announced, almost every hand went up to bid on it. I
looked over at Phil and he looked like he was in shock...good shock. :-)
I will send him your comments....he grows mostly Siberians and
Japanese along with some species.
R Dennis Hager is the hybridzer of 'Simply Stated' and also of
Gingham Geisha' that I posted on iris-photos last week. He is doing some good
work as well as Phil and others.
Mouette ("The Seagull") is

hear the birds scream in the sky.
I really love it!
