Re: HYB: Arilbreds

>Few paradoxa-derived arilbreds have been introduced.

Is this because paradoxa is diploid and modern hybridizers want to work
with tetraploids?  Or is this because most people just think it's an ugly
flower to work with?


I've never seen any of these.  Does anybody have some they could put up on
the IRIS-PHOTOS list?

I have a hillside flower bed in which I should finally be able to grow pure
arils (not just arilbreds) so I am trying several aril species & hybrids.
If it works and I get blooms in spring, I definitely want to add I.
paradoxa to my collection.

Side note:  There's so many species of irises out there that have
essentially been ignored.  It sure makes me wonder what genetic potential
must be lurking out there waiting to be discovered?  Perhaps an arilbred
that repells borers?
