maybe you should try it again with another 'partner'.
Look at the list of iris with Skating Party in their backgrown !
Maybe seedlings are more than an addition of two halves of the  chromosomes of the parents, but also depend of a magic that occurs between them.
Some matches work, some don't; don't human apply the word "Love", for their own mating chemistry.....?
I guess the cross Skating Party X Spring Fling was a mismatch, and was lacking the mysterious catalyst that make a match magical.....?

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: TB: Skating Party

I want to thank Loic for looking up the genealogy of Skating Party.  Though I still don?t know if it carries any rebloom genes.


Skating Party has always been one of my favorites.  My very first pollen daubing attempt mated Skating Party with a rose pink-iris, Spring Fling.  I dreamed of large, beautifully ruffled, rose-pink  seedlings.  I got a big pod with lots of seeds.  They germinated well.  They made a row of very vigorous clumps.  Then they bloomed.  Small, plain, dirty whites, they were all absolutely awful!  My first seedlings!  It?s a wonder that I ever did any more pollen daubing.  Of course, I did, but I have never again used Skating Party as a parent.
