Re: keeping trash

I agree with Betty that that's plenty good enough
reason to keep those seedlings -- just because a
non-iris person is drawn to them. I think your
"trashy" seedlings are pretty too -- I can see why
your brother likes them; and you could have lots worse
reasons for keeping them.
I have a large bunch of diploid seedlings that I've
kept around simply from a combination of my laziness
and sentimentality -- it was one of my early crosses
and who's got the time to clear them out. No
non-irisarians had expressed any interest in these.
But, it turns out that these seedlings had a surprise
in store for me -- they're the ones where rebloom is
now showing up. If I'd been more ruthless or
energetic, I'd never have otten to see those
rebloomers -- which I now consider one of my more
promising "breaks".
So, I say keep those pretty seedlings, Donald. Your
brother might be onto something.

I think this is definitely a good reason to keep an
iris, especially a seedling! I have a purple (to the
red side) from Chinese New Year X Theme Master that
survives because my son chose it. I saw nothing
distinctive in it and much preferred three of it's
siblings, but if it "spoke" to him? Good enough
reason to keep it! He also likes a plicata that I was
going to trash from the Hot Streak X Earl of Essex
cross! If he keeps this up, he's going to have to
take them home!
