Hi Dave. At the time I did have a few Spuria. Your
right, the Siberians don't like our climate, and so far the Japanese
refuse to bloom here. But it was a pleasant surprise. I have one other
seedling from the batch of seeds about to bloom. That will be
interesting to see what happens there.

Not sure what you are growing down there, so can't guess at
likely "other" parents. However, it is possible that an LA could cross
with any number of other beardless Iris. I would guess that any other
water Iris would do (virginica, versicolor, pseudacoris, Japanese,
etc.). It is also conceivable that Spurias, Siberians, or any number
of other types could cross with a LA. I'm guessing you don't have
Siberians, they don't tend to like our climate, but Spurias are all
over the place, even if just the old yellow or white cultivars that are
often hanging on in scattered yards.
Regardless, it's nice, and it's fun!
