Re: Re: HYB: pollination


This is an interesting question. My intermediate 20B10, an orange bi-tone, set a pod while reblooming. The only other flower open in the garden at the time was a very distinctive TB purple banded seedling from Holy Night and Sweeter Than Wine. Only one of 20B10's flowers bloomed at a time. So, if it doesn't turn out to be an air pod, the question will be whether it was selfed or whether pollen was carried from the TB. -- Griff

Subject: Re: [iris] Re: HYB: pollination


It's been my experience that air pods indicate a potentially fertile iris.
The pods fill with seeds only when the pollen parent is compatible. Bees,
BTW, are experts in pollinization so can sometimes make crosses when
hybridizers strike out. Doesn't hurt that they carry pollen from a number of
sources...

Does every variety which is known to make balloon pods *always*  make
balloon
pods, or are some of these also known to set bee pods with seeds,  or set
seeds by manual fertilization?
