Wow! As my teenage granddaughter says, "WAY
cool!" I really like the way the rim color appears to be on the back
side of the entire fall. And the lovely golden highlight colors the
edge of the haft, then continues up the lower part of the standard and appears
to be on the lower inside of the fall. It also shows itself on the
bottom of the style and tips its crest, with the fall color in the
center of the style. I don't recall having seen another iris that has
these particular markings. That certainly does not mean there is none,
but it certainly looks distinctive to my eye. Is the standard color more
yellow or peach, Griff?
I, too, really like your photo of CAREFREE DAYS.
You could make a beautiful large framed print of that one. Very
Here's a seedling I haven't had time to do
anything with -- one reason being that it's out of the normal
color schemes on which I focus, so I have concentrated on the others.
Ancestry is ROMANTIC MOOD, YVONNE BURT, and a sneaky bee.
One photo is the fully-opened flower. The
other shows the fresh color as it opens. As I recall, the branching
and bud count are okay.
Any ideas re future development?
