HYB: Another Tectorum X Bearded

  • Subject: HYB: Another Tectorum X Bearded

Just opening this morning (but not quite there yet),
when I left for work...

Iris tectorum alba X (Iris pallida KUPARI x Iris

I was hoping for a color other than purple (like
PALTEC and my FLYING DRAGON) but at least it's a much
darker purple.

I'm puzzled that this one doesn't seem to have any
cresting, only beard. Both of the others (mentioned
above) have a beard that turns into cresting on the
fall. But there are enough other peculiarities present
that it still would seem to be from the intended

Very odd branching, for instance (in the second
image). Notice the branch on the far left is coming
from the base and is as tall as the primary bloomstalk
(next to it). Also present, the flared standards
("ready for take-off") that both other hybrids have.

There were three fans -- all of which are sending up
bloomstalks, so in fear (that it'll "bloomout"), I've
pinched out the bloomstalk of the fan in the back.
Hopefully that'll encourage some increases. Wish me
