Hello, Loic,

Your first reblooming seedling!  And it has a strong green tint too!  Congratulations!

Don’t brag on my green tinted TBs though.  Their stalks were bad and their bud count low.  That will have to make a big improvement next year, or they are gone.

So rich and fat structure, overlapping falls, great harmony of colours, you've got really great seedlings Francelle, bravo!



Talking of green, here is my first rebloomer!


it has maiden bloomed in May, then rebloomed yesterday.


Not strikingly beautiful, far from the richness of Francelle's beauties, but early rebloom like this is already a nice reward!

it has also one more flower (4) than in May (3).

And the greenish yellow colour maybe sth to keep and work with.

it's as if Charabia (light yellow with a purple spot) had pushed Maui Moonlight (light yellow) towards a greener shade of yellow.


Cayeux made the same kind of cross, a bright yellow amoena (Yes) with a 'dirtier one'( Sea Monster) and got Verdissant. (vert = green in French).





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

When 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.
