<<The parents are Mariposa Skies X Pacific Belle. This seedling is a
Francelle, that is a lovely bloom. When does it start reblooming for
you? What is your zone? Do you think it would be hardy enough for
more harsh zones?
I've had Mariposa Skies for several years and it's never attempted to
rebloom. I crossed MS onto Bridge In Time but only have one seedling
germinate from it and one more in the pot this year. Will hope to see the
one bloom this spring. The two irises share a lot of DNA and I suspect
this could be the reason for the low germination. Inbreeding.
