It has a nice soft fragrance, not too spicey.  It's color is kinda steeley from a distance, lot's of 
diamond dusting up close.  I too like some of the older formed iris.  When I first started 
hybridizing I didn't have enough time to make all my crosses.  I'd read of hybridizers mixing 
pollens.  So, When i'd go out daily, I'd pic pollen from select newer cultivars that I liked, put them 
all in a film canister, and use a paint brush to pollenate. Then I'd pollenate alot of the flowers 
blooming on that day older varieites and newer ones' too.  I got about 200 seedlings from these 
crosses. I had three that bloomed in two years(this white is one of them).  I'm hoping a bunch of 
the others will bloom in spring.   I'll attach another pic of one of the seedlings, It's alittle more on 
the flared side.  Color is kinda odd, I've been refering to the color as sunset color's.  Kind of an 
pink/yellow mix bight yellow beards and hafts.  I don't know where it got these colors from.  But 
that's what happens when you don't mark them.  Will

> Hi,
> I like it a lot, but them I'm biassed toward the near species form.  I haven't seen many "old 
fashioned" looking whites that have this crisp a color.  I think the green adds to the crisp appeal of 
it.  Is it fragrant?
