Elm  --  Your Elf looks like it could let loose all kinds of wild and fun things in hybridizers' gardens.  A welcome introduction!  --  Griff

Good morning Elm, Thank you for your latest photo of Enigmatic Elf. The copy I received comes out, at my end, as very dark, very difficult to see properly its true colors. I Auto-adjusted it with IrfanView and I am attaching it for you to see if this an improvement or not for the Cklist. Thank you,

Subject: [iris-photos] Photo: New Arilbred: Enigmatic Elf

Hello, everyone!
Here is a photo of my 2007 registration and introduction:
ENIGMATIC ELF (Jensen 2007) AB (OGB) 16" (41 cm)  Light lime yellow self, S. flushed pale green, F. veined brown, burgundy, and green; diffused maroon-brown signal; beards bright orange in throat, wispy white at ends; slight fragrance.  (My Funny Valentine  X  unknown)   [this is an arilmedian]
A critter of some kind chewed the hybridizing tag, so the name was gone, but the letters OGB remained.  It is 1/2 aril.  Why "enigmatic" in the name?  Well, an enigma is a puzzle or a mystery of sorts.  One "enigma" is that it has lots of pollen.  Should it have?  Another "enigma" refers back to my arilmedian, MY FUNNY VALENTINE, its pod parent.  MFV came from an SDB and a pure aril (oncocyclus).  The cross was (Hooligan  X  I. jordana).  The "elf" refers, of course, to its height and to the fact that it is a small flower. Something puzzling happened with that cross in that My Funny Valentine was fertile, a SPEC-X cross.  Anyway, here is Enigmatic Elf.
