Re: HYB: Best plant in the Garden

My housemate Gesine has gotten seeds off of
Indian Chief, if I recall correctly.
Nightfall (Hall 1942) lists Indian Chief as
the pod parent.

Sure would be nice to pass along its weedly
nature to more modern iris :-)

For a lover of historic iris like myself, it's virtually impossible to
pick just one - here are a few of my favorites.

Indian Chief (Ayres 1929) - beautiful crimson bitone. Grows and
blooms like a weed.

Wait They are not WEEDS???????
boy I guess I will have to rethink.
Both CK and IC ARE weeds here as if Anitra (Sass 1936) is also a weedly thing here as is Gypsy Queen (Salter 1859)
I've gotten seeds off of CK but not the others it would be interesting though to try GQ with newed MTBs
