That's another beauty Paul!  Seems you have a "knack" for crossing the right irises.  Do you have any others?

Subject: [iris-photos] Glaciata Median seedling

Chubby cheeks always gives me something to think about when I make crosses with it, but this had me really surprised.   It was the only one of its kind to come out of the cross 3200-M  (Chubby Cheeks x Fancy Woman).  Most of the seedlings were blends of plicatas and luminatas. There were some pure plicatas and two pure luminatas.  But this one was a glaciata, a reverse amoena glaciata at that!  Does any one know of other glaciata medians out there?  I personally have never seen one before this...I'm sure they have happened ,  I just don't know of any....
It blooms E-M of the TB season.  Is 23" tall and as you can see has great branching. Two branches and five buds. There is a blush of yellow at the hafts and NO lines anywhere even deep into the throat.  It is even fertile and I have seeds planted.  I hope to see them sprout this spring.  Another really interesting thing about this is that just as the first stalk ended its bloom, another stalk shot up and started the cycle all over again.  All this in its first year of bloom.  I wonder if this feature will continue as it ages,....You can bet that this is one I have my eyes on this next spring....Paul
