Adam, how fun that will be to see what 'Faraway
Blue' is capable of as a parent!
I grew it here a while back, but never crossed with
it. However, I can tell you - it grew quite well
here;......... so making that cross is a VERY good thing for this
side of the U.S. too!

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.
