Re: HYB:pollination

I had something similar last year with AFTER THE DAWN, I don't use her heavily but she had four pods by season end and none of them were from intentional crosses.... and they all ended up being ballon pods.

  Found something interesting yesterday. A pod (bee or air) on SUMMER 
RADIANCE. I introduced this iris is 1996 and have used it in many crosses. It has 
never set a pod for me! 

I tried another cross on it this spring . . . just in case. It didn't take. 
Now I find this pod. What does it mean? 

Can a bloom set an AIR pod and not be able to set a real pod? Or does it 
just mean I've not tried hard enough? 

If you don't cross them, you can't plant them!
