Good luck Griff!  some parents are less prone to tweakiness in their offspring....usually ones that don't tweak themselves.

yes Griff, be glad you haven't heard the word before or had a need to use it when referring to iris.  when a SA seedling blooms and it has deformed or strangely formed flowers we call it "Tweaky" and it gets dumped ASAP.  Quite a high percentage of SAs have the problem.

Looks like something the Hubble telescope might have picked up, Mike.  "Tweak"?  Haven't heard that term before.  I suppose I should be glad I haven't.  --  Griff

Hard to convey the size and presence of this.....It is large at 6.5" and color is more saturated then appears in photos.  Falls are orbicular, ruffled and overlapping at the shoulders.  I haven't been too focused on space agers because they have a tendency to tweak....major fault in my book.  This one doesn't tweak, possibly because their are no appendages in spring, only on the fall rebloom.  Golden blaze in throat and around the end of the beards is barely visible in the picture but it really warms up the flower, also has slight golden veining on the falls and their is a faint rim.  involved parentage but includes Bragaddocio (sp), Tropical Delight, American Eagle and Ghio 983F.  Can't post a stalk and clump shot as the tractor knocked it over yesterday and this is the rescued flower.
