Re: Re: HYB: Plume d'Or? - wide falls

Hi Linda

Spring bloom is almost over. A few blooms of Chico Maid, Norma Jean ant
other lates. JI near peak. Very late season for TB.

Re wide falls fom Blyth iris, Crazy For You seems to pass it's wide hafts
on. Not a great grower for me. Barry has used it a lot. Noble Contessa from
Crazy For You x About Town and NC certainly didn't get it's wide hafts from
About Town (narrow hafts). NC is fetile both ways but I haven't had any of
it's babies flower yet, but Barry's seedlings from it seem very nice.
