Congratulations Elm. It has a lot going for it and is very
appealing! We need more irises that will stay open for 5 days!

Here are 3 photos of one of my prettiest arilbred
seedlings to have had maiden bloom this year. Its
virtues are that it is very hardy, has great substance, is pollen
fertile, has a great orange beard, maintains its color for 5 days, and it has
6 blooms per stalk (that many blooms being unusual for an arilbred). It
is OGB (1/2 aril blood). This is one I'm planning to introduce.
First day bloom, not fully open yet:
