Re: Getting the Blues

Tetraploid genetics may be a bit more complicated than your statement would
imply. Victoria Falls is prone to go over in many areas of the country,
however it has produced some outstanding iris with no tendency to flop.

Victoria Falls has a well documented habit of producing good rebloomers. A
few descendents that I know of offhand are listed below to the second
generation. If you go back to the third, the list becomes unwieldy.

Pod Parent:

Breakers (Schreiner's 86)
Bethany Claire (Zurbrigg 85)

Pollen Parent:

Sonata In Blue (R.G. Smith 92)
Suky (Mahan 91)
Violet Music (Mahan 91)

2nd generation pod:

Caribbean Dream (Schreiner's 90)
Delta Blues (Schreiner's 94)
Blue Recall (R.G. Smith R.91)
Altruist (Schreiner's 87)

2nd generation pollen

Renown (Zurbrigg 92)
Forever In Love (Mahan R.93)

Best regards,

Mike Lowe at the start of rebloom season in Virginia
