Re: Re: AB: sdlg clumps

Yikes! Good luck! I hope I have some good photos to share... I had to dig up the whole yard and move everything around last year, so things might be a bit set back. Funny, no matter how well,you think you plan, you end up having to do a redo!
On the retro thing... I may not end up breeding anything that anyone but me likes, I'm afraid. I kind of thing that iris fashion, in terms of form (not color), hit it's peak around the 50's : ) I'm well aware that that's just me! Last year my attempts at breeding went nowhere. We had a lot more rain than usual, might have been it. I was also trying to cross diploids with tetraploids in a lot of cases. Think I'll give up on that this year. Bought The World Of Iris (It just arrived last week) and it's chock full of knowledge! Hoping for better results this year.

Hello Ann,

> You say "retro" like it's a bad thing ; )

Not to me personally. I'm fond of a great many old irises and
wouldn't be willing to give them up. But realistically when you're
evaluating a seedling, then it seems necessary to view them in the
context of what is the current standard rather than a previous
decade's output. Some of these would have been nice things in an
earlier day, but don't fit well now. No matter for me. They should
contain genes I'd like to work with regardless.

When your ice is gone and you are in full bloom, I hope you share.
Because by then I'll be baking in miserable heat and probably very
dry conditions wondering if anything will survive. I just hope my
show here survives tonight. We are under threat of tornados and hail
and high winds driving heavy rainfall. I'd like the rain, but hope
the rest skips me or what I've seen bloom may well be the season.
