<<I'm tempted to play!! >>

Please do! Some times fertility is regional. Maybe, I'd be more
correct to says conditional. Irises get reputations of being
difficult, often in their home garden, only to behave much better in
other areas or in particular seasons.

I can't remember what irises I tried with Faraway Blue. My field books
are much harder to locate than my permanent beds, so it's unlikely I'll
"remember" soon!

I bought it again for the garden, here. I was still alive the last
time I checked that area.

Hi Linda and Betty,

I ran out and checked Faraway Blue, and yes, it does have pollen.

Now that no-one else has any offspring from it, I'm tempted to play!!

The flowers look healthy, especially the stigmatic lip. Sometimes
when I go to an iris with a great idea in my mind, and pollen in my
fingers, I'll get to that stigmatic lip, and there's crusty edges to
it . . . a tell tail sign that it's probably not going to set seed.
