Thanks for the support, ann !
If ever DD05-03b gets a name, it might be "Aai" .
It means "Caress" in Dutch.
Caress is not really a new concept for a pink, but i thought "Aai" sounded good, especially knowing that the French "Aye" means "Outch"...and the Scott "Aye", "Yes".
Second, we'll have to persuade Marianne Joosten, who will introduce my irises, to go "International", and for the moment, she doesn't seem convinced about going through all the trouble of the bureaucracy involved for exports!
But there is still a lot of time before anything from my garden ever gets on the market...so , we'll see!

I really like this one! I actually like it better than either of it's parents - Can't wait to see what it produces. I'd like to see it with a name, so I can buy it!

Here is the second cross from 2005 with Pink Attraction


It's  (Pink Attraction X Olympic Challenge)


DD05-03a had 3 flowers. It has 3 growths for next year.

It's carrying a pod with DD05-06a =(Tweety X Volt) 's pollen !

It's pollen has also given a pod on Tassellena!


DD05-03b had 5 flowers, and has 6 growths!

But nothing took on it, nor from it...yet!

Big hopes from this one...it's such a good grower...maybe some rebloom....???


They are the only two sdlgs I have from this cross.

Didn't keep track of the seeds number, it was 2 years ago, i just can't remember.



These are the registered babies of Olympic Challenge:

BARV MELENRUZ (G?rard Mador?, R. 2001), Sdlg. 97-202. TB, 37" (95 cm), L
HOLY HEART (Donald Spoon, R. 1995), Sdlg. 90-44. TB, 31" (79 cm), ML
ISLAND SUNSET (Schreiner, R. 1992), Sdlg. W 735-A. TB, 36" (91 cm), M
OLYMPIC CHALLENGE (Schreiner's, R. 1985), Sdlg. P 435-A. TB, 38" (97 cm), EM
RUMIANYYE SCHIOCHKI (Viktor Sholupov, R. 2001), Sdlg. 53-2. TB, 34" (87 cm), M

It seems to give good quality.

Must remember to use it again!

who, like Betty, could die (or kill...)  for a repeat, cycle & everblooming / continuous / non-daylight dependant  rebloomer!
