Francelle  --  Having other hybridizers critique your seedlings is very valuable  --  and having more than one other hybridizer do so is even more valuable.  What one person considers a fault  --  such as haft marks  -- another may not.  As with doctors, it's sometimes a good idea to get a second opinion.  I always remember with regret the opinion rendered many years ago by another hybridizer about a couple of my seedlings which had the Emma Cook pattern in shades of rose.  He said, "Why waste garden space on a pattern that already exists?"  Being cramped for such space, I reluctantly followed his advice.  Of course, it wasn't the pattern that was unique about them, but the color!  Show your seedling and see what other comments it gets.  --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] TB: HYB: clear rim on falls

This seedling of mine has a noticeable clear rim on its falls.  In sunlight it glitters like tiny drops of dew.  I thought that it was pretty and gave distinction to the iris.  However, noted hybridizer said that he considered that type of rim a defect and destroys seedlings that have it.  I would like other opinions about this.
