When you  do cull fist year seedlings what do some of you look  for?

I was ready to flex my fingers and say . . . narrow hafts, etc.,  etc., etc.  
Then I remembered another story!  ;-)  
Gilded Cream! ( 2 different pictures on Iris Photos for those that  don't 
remember it ) These two pictures look a bit different.  The  domed standards and 
deeper color are the way I saw it at Alvaton and the way it  looked in MS 
(Bill's picture).  The paler version is what I saw in Memphis  (Robin's picture) 
and how it blooms here in the new soil.  
However, I saw it blooming at Rockytop Gardens one spring and I couldn't  
believe it was the same iris.  I've never seen it look like that before or  
since.  It looked . . . awful!  Small, tight blooms with hafts you  could drive a 
truck through.  The only thing it had in common with the iris  I love each 
spring was the clump of stalks!  
Did I help any???
