HYB: AR: Mohr's Regelia x Germanica Crosses

<<  Thanks Anner.  Absolutely wild!  Any indication of why Mohr & 
Mohr-Mitchell were trying that cross? >>

They were Mohr's cross. Accomplished in California. Grace Sturtevant 
corresponded with him about genetics. Mitchell picked up the dropped flag, as 
it were. 

As I've said here before, the twenties were a period of extraordinary 
hybridizing activity and considerable interest in exotic irises. You may be 
interested in ordering a HIPS copy of AIS Bulletin Number 9 which was 
dedicated posthumously to Mohr and discusses his work, which included other 
unusual crosses.

<< I wonder if either BELLORIO or CARMELO were fertile?>>

There are indications in an article in the above Bulletin that some results 
of that cross were fertile. I did not see those names in that context in the 
brief skim I did.

<<  Or if they are still around? >>

Don't see any sign of them in the usual documents in which HIPS looks for 
signs of survival. The arilfolk may know more. 

<<Love to buy those and see what they think of the frostprone rockpile here. 

Might have made it, although we don't exactly seem to be overrun with the 
things today and that is rarely a positive indicator of exceptional thrift. 
CARMELO was said to have been hardy in Massachusettes and Holland. It was a 
grey-blue. BELLORIO was described as mouse-colored.

Anyone interested in crosses involving arils and others might find this issue 
very interesting. It also contains a great deal of information about bulbous 
irises. It is available from Dorothy for five dollars.

You ever tried any Junos down there? Bucharica or magnifica or whatnot?
