[PHOTO] SDB: KENTUCKY BLUEGRASS
KENTUCKY BLUEGRASS (Bennett Jones, 1970) near green self.
This is definitely a near green flower. But if a flower is a "self"
shouldn't the beard be the same color too? I'm not familiar with all those
"rules" but maybe this isn't Kentucky Bluegrass? What do you folks think?
I like this iris, but so do the aphids. For that reason, I am not using it
too much in my hybridizing. The aphids attack this iris before any others
in my garden.
I also like it because it's from 1970 (the year of my birth). I've started
a collection of 1970 irises. :) Next year *I'M* going to be historic!
