Wow, Griff. That is a big leap of form, for sure.
Your photos show one of the things I still dislike in working with these
oldies that seems to be more of a consistent trait - those stripey hafts
on seedlings with dark falls.
Nothing wrong with them, except when that's a trait that you get in
every seedling from every cross. Some seedlings really held back by the
last 12 months weather were my first attempt to see how using a black
iris (HELLO DARKNESS) to (hopefully) smooth out the color might work.
Would love to see results of more experiments with oldies. Thanks
Griff. And Loic. Glad to see you made it back on photos!
