Ugly duckling

I want to thank Loic, and everyone else, who responded to my ugly duckling.  

I've learned so much from this cross.  (Lemon Reflection x All Revved Up)

This is one of the second year germinants that bloomed in the summer of 2006.  We discussed them a bit at the time. 

My inner rebloom enthusiast does like it and I recognize it's worth as a parent.  Much of it's preceived roughness can be attributed to the self x plicata factor.  Cleaning them up may be a problem.  Another seedling, crossed with a blue bitone, gave a seedling with veiny falls.  (Think Crazy For You,)  

Stated in another way, their value may be better used in the yellow/red plicata line.  Of course, this was the original goal. 

<<don't always need to be bright and garish,>

Unfortunately, that is one of my faults!  I love irises with super saturated colors.  The hotter the better.  I love the amoenas, probably because I get the contrast all in one bloom. 

I see pastels as accent colors.  It's a good thing people like to send them as bonus material!  <smile>  

One of my original goals was to widen the color range in rebloom.  I get really tired of white, purple & yellow. 

Thanks to all!

Hello betty,
The colours are nicely subtle, don't always need to be bright and garish, some people might find this one very pleasing.
And the touching falls are so good : you are proving rebloomers have reached a level that can compare to non rebloomers !
Don't let the shrinking days get your spirit down, this is a lovely rebloomer Betty!

This is 1812-2G-03re . . . Lemon Reflection X All Revved Up.  Three stalks blooming today and it looks like all mature fans have stalks.  Anyone like these colors? 

I just can't warm up to this.  Maybe the next generation?
