Pearl................isn't it thrilling? I'm
so happy for you! Your very first seedling and what a surprise that it is
not the purple you expected. Congratulations! I would have
thought the same thing - that it would have been purple since you had no other
LA's around. And to answer your question - No - they cannot cross with
Tall Beardeds. At least that is what I've heard and often been told. I'd
be interested to see if your new seedling changes in form or bud count by next year. Please keep us

My very first seedling! This is from a beepod on Clyde
Redmond, a dark purple Louisiana iris. I really wasn't excited when I found
the bud on this one. Clyde Redmond was the only LA iris I had at the time so I
expected "just another purple iris". Imagine my surprise when I found this. I
am assuming that LA iris cannot cross with TB's?
