100 years from now I fully expect irises to be ever-bloomers, the form
will undoubtedly include appendages that will be consistent, all
haft areas will overlap, there may even be petaloids that come up through the
style arms giving the whole flower 3 more petals. Iris leaves will come in
variegated form of white, green, yellow, purple, and maybe others.
thoughts for 100 years from now:
will be able to change the color of the flowers with special fertilizers.
will be sick of RED colored irises and would prefer the new neon shades
will be so tough, a Tsunami wouldn't tear a single petal.
shows will have holograms instead of true stalks (which will make transporting
irises to the show much easier)
gardens will have climate control and robotics to maintain the garden and
of viable seeds will germinate and bloom in 6 months time.
flowers will be the size of dinner plates.
