SPEC: last pollination of 1998

From:	dkramb@tso.cin.ix.net (Dennis Kramb)

Well, my I. pumila var. attica sent up one bloom a few days after
Christmas.  There was no pollen on the anthers so I was unable to do a self
cross.  (Now this surprises me, shouldn't a wild collected species iris
have pollen????)  Instead I took some pollen out of the freezer and applied
it to the I. attica flower.  With luck it will develop into a nice seed pod
for me in a few weeks!  The pollen parent was URIAH THE HITTITE a very nice
reblooming bicolor with palish cream stands and maroon falls.

The other dozens of rzs I have ought to bloom for me in a couple months
(which is when they're supposed to do it).
