My cross was using KOKO KNOLL, an arilbred.  The idea for me is to
see whether the rather washed out markings will let some of the richer
arilbred color show up.  Sort of the same plan I have on TENNESSEE
GENTLEMAN.  Not that I don't prefer BQ to TG as an iris.  I do.  But
rebloom is still a big question for me in our long, hot dry falls lately,
so I'm not sure I could ascertain whether any seedling would rebloom
or not.  I might have a super fall bloomer and never know it :).
