Thank you Paul,

This was a cross of siblings that were supposed to be MACHO HOMBRE X 
KOKO KNOLL.  I've felt the cross was contaminated and think getting 
these seedlings are an indication the pollen parent is wrong and the 
seedlings a result of a contaminated cross.  The idea was this group 
of seedlings would give some that resembled the grandparents.  That 
hasn't happened so far.  All those that will bloom this year look like 
the seedling parents and don't resemble MH or any other iris I've had 
growing.  Still trying to figure out the cross.  Generally nice 
plants, but haven't been easy podders and seldom produce pollen.  No 
pollen at all this year, e.g.  These seedlings are following that 
pattern as well, but all of them didn't bloom as first year plants.
