I have read this, but I have never succeeded in getting viable seed. Do you
know of any case where viable seed has been obtained, and seedlings resulted?
I crossed Albicans with a violet colored Standard Dwarf Iris whose name I
don't remember. A nice pod formed with lots of seeds and excellent
germination. I crossed these two because they were blooming at the same time
in central Louisiana in late February. The little iris was received from a
daylily/iris friend in Columbia, Missouri. Unfortunately, I did not bloom
the seedlings out because I move to Texas and could not take everything with
me. I doubt they would have bloom in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas anyway.
