Here's my first ever Louisiana iris seedling.  It bloomed this past spring 03.  This one confuses me, 
as it looks nothing like any of the possible LA parents.  The most like it is i. brevicaulis, this 
seedling has much better, and taller stalks.  I mixed pollen on this year of crosses.  I'd read about 
hybridizers mixing pollens in hopes of inter-specific crosses.  Hopefully I'll spell these 
right...pseudacorus, siberian, foetidisima, spuria, virginica, ensata, and louisiana were all mixed 
together in a film canister, and pollen brushed on with a small paintbrush.  Whatever was 
blooming that day and was appreciated for some reason, was mixed up.  This was one of my first 
hybrizing ventures in an attempt to get something different.  This is the only LA seedling that 
bloomed this year, have more, but they weren't as vigourous.  This one grew like a weed and 
bloomed it's second year.  Only a couple flowers, but sure surprised me when the bloomstalk 
popped out.  I'd read they take much longer to bloom.  It had 3 flowers, but I was more than 
happy with that.  It grew from LA seed.  I'm not saying it's definately a species cross, just that it 
could be.  I'd thought about sending an image to Iris City Gardens, since they have lot's of species 
crosses, to see what they thought.  Never have though, figured I'd wait to see how it blooms next 
year, it's alreay got 4+ increases, so i'm pretty excited.  The color is actually really close to what it 
really looked.  the flower is mainly a clear blue, and the styles have more of a purple that is more 
intense in the viens.  Any thought's on it.  I know this method might drive some people crazy, but 
it's already been done.  I'll be labeling future crosses, I was more haphazard when I made this 
cross.  As always I appreciate any info..thanks..Will
