This is one of my most favored "black" iris I grow.
First year bloom on first year plant, I tried my hand hybridizing it, and got
several pods around the garden, as well as some pods on it. This iris was
sent to me with my order as a bonus (from Cooley's gardens.), and I truly am
thankful! I hope it has enough increase this year to bloom again in
'05! I can't remember how it looked before I mulched it, but I think it
might have been on the scrawny side.

One of the crosses I made with Sam's pollen was with
Too Sweet (Ernst '94). My photo of T.S. is posted on this site,
and here's the link. >
I'm curious as to what the seedlings will look like.
:-) They're planted, but it'll take two or three years before I see
blooms. Oh well, at least I got a start. :-)
