Re: HYB: Using Good Plants

I have a seedling that is a great plant (healthy, vigorous, well porportioned,

Maybe redo the cross and try for good plant + good flower?

I don't know Lapwing, but Stingray is unlikely to produce any modern-looking
seedlings.  It is tall and well-branched.  It is also a reblooming fool: I
only have one stalk on it now, the fewest for any week in the past year or
two.  It is probably the least modern-looking iris in my garden.

Good luck with your future hybridizing, Sterling!
