Hi Dennis,

I use 99-1, 99-2 and etc., etc., for that year regardless of the year of 
cross. I also have a stud book with all crosses to refer back in case I need 
too. I also make that notation in my stud book so there won't be a problem 
later on....Dave Niswonger uses this system so if it worked for him I figure 
it'll work for me. He starts with the first iris which would be in his case 
SDB's right on up to the beardless. I don't know about other but if I see a 
one year bloom I like I will relocate that seedling as soon as possible to 
give it more growing room. I know Dave leaves his in the spot for two bloom 
seasons. But I want as much increase as possible if it does turn out to be a 
nice seedling. I figure by moving and lining it out the first year I am one 
year ahead of myself.
