Yes, it is  an IB:
It was about 10cm above the max SDB, with a flower slightly bigger than a SDB;     the perfect IB for me!

I've been through the frozen garden this morning but i couldn't find it. I didn't make a map of the beds last year, and since it bloomed indoor, i can't tell if it's got growth for next year.
But if it blooms again, i surely will recognize it!

Thanks for the (nice)  comments Adam!

Hey there, Loic,

Is that an IB size?  With Florentine Silk as pollen parent, I would almost assume so.

NICE COLOR!  I really like it!  And that dark wash on the hafts is just delightful in my opinion.

Hello everyone,

frost has hit but i had brought all the stems inside...so here is what opened this morning:


it is E133A: B099B: (Circus Clown x Flower Child) X Florentine Silk

I have been using other irises to get
contrasting hafts, and this seedling came as a surprise. Of course, there is the influence of 'Circus Clown', but i didn't expect anything like this from 'Florentine Silk'.

I cannot wait to pollinate it next year with the pollent of this one:
that also has
'Circus Clown' in the backgrounds since it is D149A = Hola's sib B052A:(Circus Clow x Chemistry) X Burano

Hola's sib B052A:(Circus Clow x Chemistry)  has given me good things: http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=33249763@N04&q=b052a

Hope a bit of colour has brighten the day!
