It must have had beautiful branching, good placement of big colorful buds, and nothing more exciting showed up.

This is to test your hybridizing knowledge.


Last September 11, I posted photos of LYNSEY ALEXANDRA and my seedling 20Q5 and asked why I would cross them.  You smarties guessed the answer right away (keep 20Q5's rich colors and get LA's broader falls.).


Night before last, I visited one of my distant seedling plots that rain had kept me out of to see if there was anything I might take to the Fredericksburg Area Iris Society show the next morning.  More rain was pending, so anything I wanted to take would have to be cut that evening.  I saw that 07U8, a seedling from the above cross, had one completely spent blossom, but others might bloom overnight.  I cut it.  The next morning, no other buds had opened and I doubted that any would before the judging.  I took it anyhow.


Quiz questions:  Why did I take it and why did it win "best seedling"?  Clue:  The answer to both questions is the same.  --  Griff
