breed it as much as possible, it has that nice "melted crayon" patterning and very nice form and color. lack of vigor can be overcome by taking the pollen to a vigorous plant and sometimes vice versa.
Good luck.
Best regards

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: Questionable seedling

This is the time I have to make final decisions on some of my seedlings.  I need suggestions about this one.  It has bloomed four years for me, and I have received more compliments on it than on most of my other ones.  I have been told that it is a unique color and pattern.  Its problem is that it a poor grower, subject to many problems in my garden.  After all this time, I have only two healthy rhizomes.  I am tempted to toss them, yet I hate to.  What should I do?
