Thanks Rose. The form certainly isn't modern on WEDDING IN CANA, but
that hasn't scared me away from using things so far, and it does sound
like these guys have some tough genes. Plus potential for "summer" bloom.
Speaking of breeding with older irises, keeping my fingers crossed for
maiden bloom to make it open before it gets frozen solid - creamy yellow
in bud: IMM X pink non-rebloom seedling: (PINK FORMAL x CSONG).
