I liked all the pictures you posted today, but
particularly these, and your volunteer. And I found myself wondering what the
volunteer would produce if crossed with one of the early Cayeaux irises, one of
the ones with the 'smoky' coloring in the standards...

New pictures of old seedlings...
These seedlings combine three very
different species: Iris cengialtii, Iris variegata and Iris suaveolens var.
I kept these two because I thought they had an exotic
arilbred-like look that appealed to me. They also have better form than many
of their siblings.
