Thanks Mary Lou. Not very encouraging ratios, are they?
I'm mostly trying to <find> my notes, update the field notebook, update
seedling survival tables (assuming I can <find> the rest of the notes!)
so I can start thinking about what I want to do this coming spring.
My hope is to make more (IMM x A) X (IMM x B) or X (ENGLISH COTTAGE x
C)type crosses, but I'm not sure there will be much worth working with
yet. Worthy bloom quality, stalk height, etc plus fertile. Possibly
more from IMM X KIWI CHEESECAKE, or from IMM/ENG C X SHARPSHOOTER,
FOGBOUND, ABOVE THE CLOUDS, BURST, TREASURED, or even pink sdling: (PINK
FORMAL x CSONG), plus the usual 6 IMM X CSONG kids.
I will continue to try to figure out something useful to do with the tet
looking I. pallida grandchild, & DUSKY GRAPE & sibs.
Definitely plan to work the yellow & pink seedlings from cream: (IMM x
CSong) X TREASURED. But availability of pollen will determine what I
mix with them. Be nice to put some kind of banded rebloom parent (i.e.,
one of Sutton's) on them, but who knows if any will produce pollen.
And, of course, I probably won't be able to resist doing more IMM
crosses <g>, tho I <hope> I will resist attempting more with HoM. Too
If new starts of TRANS-ORANGE will cooperate, I'd like to try putting it
on some of the other IMM X CSONG kids to see if I can get some nicer
pink & yellow amoenas.
Depending on what the RENOWN kids look like, I might try to use it more.
Made a couple of half sib crosses 2008 with RENOWN X DOCTOR ALAN
seedlings and might try some more of those this year.
The rest will just depend on what makes pollen here and whether or not I
can get myself up to Tennessee's iris heaven (the Gosnells) to collect
