Hi Sterling and others,
Doctor No is registered as a space-age iris.
I went out and checked each flower, and they all have horns on them, and
pretty consistent on each bloom as well, although each bloom may vary slightly
from another. One of them has extended fuzzy horns, but most just come to
a short point.
Branching and bud count vary from place to place and from judge to
judge. Since you are asking ME, and I am not a judge yet, but am
working on it, I would say this variety has had good branching for me. I
am sorry to say that I forgot to count the blooms, but I did
pollinate two flowers before this photo (which did not take), and there
were four blooming in the photo, and I believe I remember more buds
under one in the photo that I pollinated this morning, so there is at
least your minimum of 7. On another stalk, one of my crosses took, and a
pod has formed, so I know this is definitely pod fertile.
The branching on this stalk was quite wide,
but another stalk that is up is more narrow.
As far as substance is concerned, these flowers survived a couple
torrential downpours of rain we had the previous day.

The stalk looks like it has good branching. Do
know the bud count?
Thanks for the
