<<  How easy is it to do the PALTEC cross? In an idle moment, I daubed a bit

PALTEC (Denis 1912) is a cross of I. tectorum and EDINA , a form of I. 
pallida. In that cross the tectorum was the pod parent. LOPTEC was a cross 
between I.tectorum and I. cengialtii loppio, with the tectorum as pollen 
parent. I. cengialtii is a delicate form of I. pallida.
I personally don't know how difficult the cross actually is. The anecdotal 
evidence is  that others have tried and it hasn't taken. The presumption is 
that you are working against very considerable odds since you are talking 
about a bearded iris and a crested (beardless Evansia) iris. My impression is 
that it is of a level of difficulty that would make success on the first try 

Hence my interest when it sounded like Lloyd might have been working in this 
area and gotten some seedlings, all of which were lavender. But it developed 
that he was musing that he wasn't getting any white tectorum seedlings when 
they were open pollinated with lavender ones in his garden.
