Re: HYB: New tectorum X bearded in full bloom

It's definitely lots more difficult than the average
TB X TB cross, but on occassion, you WILL get seeds
from bearded crosses with Iris tectorum. But, I've
never heard of any other beardless species that will
cross with bearded ones.

I'm hoping this seedling won't "bloomout", because it
isn't like the other two tectorum X beardeds that I
have. I'd like to keep it alive, so that I can try to
verify its hybridity.

I'll attach a picture of those other two, so you can
see the typical "half beard / half crest" that I was
expecting to see.
PALTEC (Denis 1928) is pretty well known and was my
inspiration for trying these crosses. FLYING DRAGON is
my own hybrid. Here they are:
