I like it, Donald.  Those big pointed signals are very distinctive, or are they really beards? 


Choosing which ones to keep is hard.  I keep the ones I like best, line them out, and watch them for a few years.  Then they either bloom out, refuse to grow well, or I get tired of their faults and dig them.  If I still love the survivors of all that, I plan to introduce them.

I liked all six, but this is the one I like the best.  This is just a
portion of what is blooming.  Not too bad for a 3 year old plant.  The
camera refuses to pick up the odd, smooth blending that comprises the color,
but it has no trouble with the effect of the beard and the underlying color
the beard sits on.  Compared to all the other irises I grow, this one seems
distinctive, particularly because of the beard.  It's an eyecatcher for the
visitors that have seen it.  This clump is what's left after all the high
winds this week, including today.

So how you other folks that grow seedlings decide about them?
