RE: HYB: Pink Attraction X Romantic Evening seedlings

Those are nice pictures of nice seedlings, Robin.  I love the color of No. 2 and the lined falls on No. 3.  No. 1 and 3 seem to have wide enough falls.  Pink Attraction is one of the most miserable irises I have.  It grows poorly and puts three misformed flowers on stalks twelve to fifteen inches high.  I can’t bring myself to cross it with anything.  I am usually inclined to pitch it, but I keep hoping it will do better.


Thanks for the pictures, and congratulations on pretty seedlings.  I didn’t use Romantic Evening this spring.  I’ve seen too many seedlings that look almost exactly like it.  Perhaps I’ll try it on one of my pink seedlings next year.

I thought maybe these would give a idea of what Romantic
Evening does on a rebloom parent with older form.  These
are a few, the middle one (I think that's the order they'll
be in) is typical of the average width in the

I did bloom a lot of RE seedlings this spring for the very
reason that it is so pollen fertile.  Fancy Woman and Suky
may be almost as fertile.
