Wow - those are very lovely first generation kids from such an old iris!
Thanks for making that cross, Loic, and sharing the pix.
I have enjoyed playing around with some of these old irises, mixing them
with some of the most modern ones.
Did you take notes on heights? Also, bloom size? Just wondering if
they tended to be short with smaller flowers than most modern TBs.
ROMANTIC EVENING seedlings so far have tended to have smaller flowers
here. Maybe the combination of parents?
