<<Does it grow well, and is it pod/pollen fertile? Thanks in
Sterling, Everyone loves this one. It's pod fertile since Joe Ghio
introduced Bubbling Waves from it this year.
I've had this iris since the year of introduction or maybe the next
year. I would have loved to use it in breeding but it just has never
performed in a way that I wanted to encourage. It does NOT grow well for
For me, it is extremely slow to increase. I thought I'd lost it this
year and it didn't bloom. I've had two stalks since I bought it. Bud
count was low here, too.
I don't live in Linda's 'vale of despair' and a surprising number of
California iris are growing better here than they did in my earlier
locations. This one has done poorly in two of those locations.
This is only one report. Hope you get others that are better.
