Thank you, for your comments, Linda. The two big rows of seedlings were pollinated
in the spring of 2001, germinated in pots and planted in March 2002. This is their second bloom.I lost a year of hybridizing due to
planting a guest bed for last year’s regional convention.I must select a few now to line out this
fall. So far, I’ve selected
way too many.All irises are

Very lovely, Francelle. Makes me want to grab a
chair and go sit and stare at them.
When you say two year seedlings, do you mean they
were from pods two years ago this spring?

like this morning. In the upper left
corner is a glimpse of the ones I planted into the ground last fall. In between is a
row of regular irises. Francelle Edwards Glendale, AZ Zone 9>
