Betty, I can't imagine i made you jealous with an IB!
First a Dykes Medal for an IB, now Betty gets in a state about an IB, what's next ?
As i said after when i posted the cross Hello Darkness X What Again, i am much more pleased with these seedlings than with the ones from Best Bet.
On top of it, Best Bet is not a very reliable iris because it rots, and when it doesn't all rot and you manage to get 3 pods on the surviving ones, then you lose the pods because, for no reason i can think of except only to anoy me, Best Bet starts to rot at the base of the stralks holding these 3 pods!
i just hate it!
Don't bother with it, there are much better ones anyway nowdays!

Okay!  This isn't fair!  You managed to make me jealous.  Best Bet will not live in my garden.  I've lost it a number of times, and I'd given up trying. 

Gorgeous seedling. 

<<only one to rebloom,>>

I have a few more pots available for pot culture.  Anyone have a spare rhizome of BB?  <smile>  I'll pay.

Back to medians...
This IB, sdlg TD06-01Lre = ( Best Bet x What Again) is the only one to rebloom, so far, out of 24 sdlgs from this cross.
It's with the same cross that Lowell Baumunk got Midsummer Night's Dream and Barrel House Blues, and i wanted to see if i could get anything interesting from it too.
Well, guess i've been lucky!
