Re: Iris Breeding

In a message dated 97-02-07 15:43:26 EST, you write:

<< If we are talking Talls then
 :  surely Pallida, Variegata, Trojana and Mesopotamica would be here. >>

And aphylla, pumila, reichenbachii, suaveolens, cypriana, and others
including a number of aril species.  Interestingly there is a famous
reblooming iris with some aril in its background---Lloyd Zurbrigg's EARL OF
ESSEX.  All modern dominant amoenas have either reichenbachii or suaveolens
in their background (I say "either" because there is a question as to whether
the species Cook used to get PROGENITOR was reichenbachii or suaveolens).
