Hi Gary, and others,
I think that seedling is beautiful . . .. smokey colors are "in" right now . . . and I wouldn't necessarily consider that seedling a muddy tone. I can't explain what it is, but there is a distinct difference between "muddy" colors, and "smokey" colors.
Keep it! Is there by any chance any of Barry Blyth's irises in your seedling's pedigree?
Just wondering, and THANKS for posting it!!
