Re: fly or die

Mike, if you are still in doubt about this one after receiving a number of commitments to buy it as an introduction, then guest it at some other gardens to test its performance in other climates. If it does as well in the other gardens, then you know you have a winner based on performance in different gardens. I am volunteering to be a host as several others did also.  I would even be inclined to participate in a Schreiner's type paid guesting program. And much more so than I would be with any of the Schreiner's test guest offerings that I have seen offered in their catalog. At least they have been honest is saying that they were doubtful about those guests being introduced. I wondered if that wasn't simply a sneaky way of getting half of an introduction price for something that failed in their introduction process after they had too many to just sell as cheap color.

Subject: [iris-photos] fly or die

Since you all are experienced irisarians, if you don't mind I could use your input.  Many times we have seedlings that are either iffy or our opinions are jaded by a dislike of a certain color or something.  So I figured I would send out some pictures to you all and see what your opinions are.  (scary, huh?)  Here is a nice rebloomer, with good form but it's yellow.  I don't like yellow that much and George thinks yellow is overdone.  However this one looks great and has great branching with 11 buds.  What do you think, fly or die?
