Re: HYB: help - I. pallida crosses

The seedlings from IMMORTALITY etc have the health of pallida here, plus potential for rebloom.

But, as we've discussed before, IMM has a tendency to make lots of little ratty rhizomes & fans with few bloomstalks, & a tendency to pass that trait along to its children.

Perhaps there is some potential to add more inclination to make bloomstalks by adding some fresh pallida genes to the pool. Ideal cross would be pallida X IMM, but since I never get pollen on IMM, that approach is out. But will try to remember to daub some pollen from some of her kids on the most floriferous of the pallida kids this spring.

Assuming I get them back in the ground soon!
