Re: CULT: Rebloom -- Wearing Rubies

Hi, Lloyd  --  Nice to hear from you!  Have you some photos of those
seedlings?  It's great when one's predictions are borne out, eh?  I failed
again this year, as every year,  to get any crosses on your JENNIFER
REBECCA.   I got seedlings from three different crosses on it in 1996 and
lost all of them to heaving in the disastrous winter that followed.  It is a
beautiful flower, and I hope to find the magic touch again one of these

I'm tempted by oranges.  I have an iris which I acquired as WILD WEST WIND,
which I think is an absolutely great orange.  Trouble is, Lowell Baumunk's
description of WWW is not of an orange flower!  I just discovered the
discrepancy.  I'll have to see if I have a photo of it and will look for
some help in identifying it.  --  Griff
