I'm completely overwelmed by the grace of these
small flowered iris !
I've always been very fond of Pop Concert, for
example, with it's smaller ruffled flowers.
I'm very happy you are creating new iris with
There is nothing more anoying than finding
half the iris lying down in the morning, after heavy rains during the
night, with he boring task of having to stake them all, one by one, between
showers, or completely soaked yourself, puddling in mud.

With wildly mixing SDBs, MTBs, MDBs, IBs, BBs,and
TBs, i don't know with what kind of iris i will come up, but eventually, they

Subject: Re: [iris-photos] In Flight not
sure whether this is an IB, MTB or TB ??
IN FLIGHT is a small bloomed TB much like
Paul Black's DOLCE. It is out of aphylla a few generations back.
As it exceeds the height for an IB or BB it had to be classified as a
TB. Some gardener's find these smaller iris are excellent for use
in flower arranging and the rarely fall over in 'less than desireable' weather
Not everyone wants an outsized bloom that needs stakeing
in order to remain upright. We often have rain during the bloom season and
most TB's fall over from the weight of rain on the open blooms. IN
FLIGHT does not.
