Re: CULT: Frank Adams

Hey Laurie, although I don't remember FRANK ADAMS
having quite as red coloring here (and soil can make a
big difference), those are great pictures. Thanks for
making them available.

And since Paul mentioned difficulty using FRANK ADAMS
as a parent. I'll add that I had pretty good luck with
getting pod set this season, but I was using Iris
aphylla WINE RED pollen. I haven't gotten around to
trying to germinate them yet [so many other projects
and life demands], but my idea [in case anyone else
wants to give it a try too] is that in an advanced
generation, aphylla anthocyanin intensifying genes
combined with malvidin expression might result in a
redder red. But in any case, I've been thinking that
aphylla seems to be getting me seeds on quite a few
"difficult" seed parents.
