Re: iris dreams/solstice/WABASH X MULBERRY ROSE

Geddes Douglas worked on the recessive amoenas, (like WABASH) for many years.
 Extravaganza X Wabash was repeated many times with some success. The problem
 was that these irises resented being inbred, giving poor germination, and
poor growth immediately after germination. If they survived this period,
their growth was usually good.  THREE CHEERS was a Wabash seedling from  paul
Cook  l945. My own SAILS 7 SEAS came from the Extravaganza X Wabsh cross. But
the advent of the dominant amoenas from Paul Cook , made  the use of the
recessive amoenas seemingly redundant.  WHOLE CLOTH  became the typical
parent instead of WABASH .  LLOYD ZURBRIGG, DURHAM, N.C. ZONE 7.5
