A lovely iris.

Again problem in bringing these tones into Arils is lack of lycopene genes in arils. the orange falls and beard are a product of having lycopene genes. which are not only involved in pinks, but in producing oranges. So best will be 1/4 aril. then cross the  1/4 bred with lycopene to each other to increase aril content.

The late Ben Hager's 'Earth Born' is one of those TBs that not only creates a sense of awe in me but also simply makes me happy and makes me smile.  Nice form, sturdy stalk, good branching, and.....color!  I am using it to try to bring some of those colors into my arilbred lines.  There is a fat pod on it right now.
