Margie I love the Puccini seedling, would love to grow it here in Missouri.  The form and coloration is very interesting and I for one love dark beards.  Would be a waste of good genetics not to put that into our gene pool, I think.  I really enjoy your photos and explanation of what you are looking for in your hybridizing.  The flounced seedling is nice, the purple/grey/yellow one is not to my liking but interesting in color combination. 
Thanks so much for posting, I am also in southern MO and like Connie and Bill Wells far to much of my garden has suffered such severe freeze damage I will have very limited bloom this year 8>(.  However I am pleased to say with moving all potted seedlings indoors and covering seedling beds with straw and tarps I did not lose a one.  Gives much home for the next 2 years.

A 'white flounced darkie'. (2 photos in this email) 
Part of my hybridizing program DOES INCLUDE (at times) using older named varieties to bring out (possibly) long lost traits, colors, or patterns. I've noticed that some irises with older forms have been introduced in the last 10-20 years due to their uniqueness
I'll surely try taking this one to the next level, but meanwhile it may be screaming to be introduced.  (funny thing - - I'm not even working with space age irises) Let me know what you think.
Consistent 3 white flounces on this. You may want to open your e-mail to full screen to see this.
