Subject: [iris-photos] IB-LIGHT CAVALRY

 Two different shots, in different lights, and different camera settings of a very interesting iris.

I pollinated it with DIXIE PIXIE who has also very distinctive hafts but i only got two seeds...

I will do better this spring i hope.

Considering it's age, the shape is quite good, and the colours are deep.



(Bennett Jones, R. 1966), Sdlg. I-27-1.

IB, 18" (46 cm), M
"Indian lake (Wilson 826/3) self with crimson hafts.

 Captain Gallant X M114 ((Carpathia x Lapham C46) x Red Rockette)).

 Jones 1967 HC 1966, HM 1968, JC 1969."




Here are the registered children of LIGHT CAVALRY

I couldn't find any picture on internet.
If someone could pass any information about them, i'd be delighted.
I have the impression this LIGHT CAVALRY has potential.
