Very nice, Paul.  This line appears to be producing a lot of superior color and form.  --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] 1901-F a sib from the luminata line

    This has no plicata or luminata expressed but is from the same line as the ones I've been posting.  It has tangerine beards, has wonderful form, branching and bud count as well as growing very well here in the south with no rotting at all in the two years it's been here.....1901-F  (Silk Brocade x (( Lightning streak x Sky Hooks) x Fancy Woman)).......Paul Hill
    Thanks....Most of the form comes from Keith Keppels hard work and the super growing habits, I believe, comes from the cross with Sky Hooks....We are only as good as those who come before us.  I just hope that the form can stay with vigor as I proceed in generations to come.  I've tried to come at it from different angles, so that those lines will be crossed and back crossed and still remain vigorous. Maybe in a few years I'll know the answer to that one...;)   Paul
PS   Here is the most recent sib to the one originally posted.  This is seedling 1901-3CC.  It is similar to 1901-F but has a definite darker coloring in the standards.  Again, great brancing....
