Francelle  --  This seedling and your pleasure from it (which I share) demonstrate that "good form" in irises is like good music, according to Duke Ellington: "If it sounds good, it is good."  Attached is a photo of an unidentified iris blooming now in my garden.  I think it was mistakenly sent by a friend who intended for me to receive LADY FRIEND.  I did receive LADY FRIEND, but here is the stranger blooming in the same clump.  My point is, it's not modern form, but who can look at this beautiful thing and say it's not good form?   --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: TB: Seedling with rounded falls

There has been an interesting discussion on Iris-talk about form in irises.  This seedling of mine is a very good example of rounded falls.  I happen to like it very much.  It is not an imposing iris but it is very consistent in form, size and vigor.  It always has nice stalks with seven buds.  I only had two survive from a cross I made several years ago (Pond Lily X Purple Pirouette).  The other was more spectacular but had a fatal flaw.  For three years I tried in vain to repeat that cross, but now I will be able to plant siblings for this one.  I feel that somewhere among them there may be a very remarkable iris.
