I first started pollen daubing, I thought of trying to improve the green
coloration in irises. I quickly gave it up because I decided that it was
too difficult, would take more time than I have to accomplish, and I would be
looking at too many uglies on the way. This spring I was surprised by two
seedlings from Polish Princess X Cast of Characters with shades of green.
It is not easy to see in the picture of 77-36 B, but there is a definite olive
green in and around the tip of the beard and on the back of the
standards. 77-36 A is a white iris with chartreuse hafts and rim on the
falls. Because these are not crowding anything better they will get to
bloom again next year, and I will pay closer attention to it. Also they
have several siblings that haven’t bloomed yet.
