This appears to have some very
interesting genetics behind it and is very nice. Does it rebloom? I like it and
it appears to be different enough to escape being just another blue-white which
is a colour not in a lot of demand (I like the touch of peach at the hafts).
Barry Blyth has released a lot in this colour range which has rather saturated
the market here. If it’s good in every other respect, it deserves it’s
place in the market.
I have a similar problem with
blues, “oh just another blue” and almost missed one of the best
fragranced irises I’ve ever grown (now Carol E).

Subject: [iris-photos] Pastel question
taste in flowers tends toward the bright, bold, flashy and interesting.
It is very difficult for me to walk through the seedling beds and actually see
the softer tones, selfs or yellows. When they are brought out of the
seedling beds they usually are very nice but something that might have been
passed up if I didn't force myself to double walk the beds. Attached
is a nice pastel SA out of Bride's Blush X ((Abiding Joy x Fogbound) X Social
Blush), 11 buds, 38" tall, great vigor. To me it is very pretty and
elegant however I completely missed it's maiden and second year bloom,
this is it's third bloom season and fortunately we caught it because it would
have been destroyed if not seen this year. Does anyone else have this
same problem and was wondering how many folks on the list prefer the
lighter shades or pastel colors in iris?
