Here is the seedling C186B from the 2006 cross  WISE X ELEGANT LASS
WISE is a tiny reblooming MDB from Tom Johnson. No pollen bud a smashing good pod parent!
ELEGANT LASS is a rebloming tetraploid iris from Vicki Craig. It was registered as a BB, even though it blooms with the IBs. ( something ought to be done for the categories in Medians, it's really turning into an absurd game!)
Maiden bloom for this seedling, that is absolutely up to my wildest expectations: tiny flowers, thin but strong stalks (considering we've had rain and hail for the last 2 days), very low branching, and many flowers!
It has reached 41cm so in an IB.
Now, let's hope it reblooms in a couple of months. I'm quite optimistic that should be the case, there are 4 growths that look they could already put up a stalk now!
The trick to make the old fashion shape  of the aphylla disapear is to cross them with very 'compact' irises, like most Mid-america Garden's SDBs.
I'm over the moon!
