Re: x 'Paltec'

I've always understood this to be a pallida and tectorum hybrid (hence the
name Paltec).
However, the 39 CL definitely gives the cross as tectorum x EDINA, raised and
introduce by Denis of France.
Edina was raised by Lemon in 1840. The 39 CL gives it as obsolete. No
information is given about the parents.

I grow this plant and enjoy it, although I find the flowers to be a little
too flimsy to withstand the sharp showers that can attacked the earlier
blooming irises. I'd be interested to know what you find out about it, Anner.
