I intended to convey that the record indicated to me that it was probably a 
pretty long shot, not that the plant in question has no attractive 
characteristics, nor that anyone who wants to take a whack at hybridizing 
with it should not follow their fondest yearnings. 

I had been speaking of  'I.germanica' as a pod parent. Pollen parent may be 
another issue altogether. Pollen crosses with I. korolkowii have been 
recorded (BELLORIO [Mohr-Mitchell, 1924]; Carmelo [Mohr, 1921]). See Garden 
Irises, p.524. I.korolkowii is a Regelia.
