*blush* Thank you very much Bill, I really appreciate
the compliment. I am glad to hear others are
interested in them and appreciate the info though, I
am no expert by any means. I guess in my fascination
of breeding flat blooming and novelty irises I have
hunted, collected and grown quite a few of them.  I
have discovered that quite a few of them do not bloom
as advertised, many have messed up blooms that don't
open properly such as Calamity Jane. 

Also, as a side note, a lot of them don't produce
viable pollen and are pod sterile, like Mother Nature
is saying "No!" to more flat bloomers. This year I
found pollen on Rhythm, Little Freak, Clematis and
Fran's Flattie so I did a few crosses with them on
diploid and tetraploid varieties. Most of the crosses
did not take but I managed to get a few pods with
Clematis and Rhythm pollen on Cybernet which is a
diploid (I think... it has a tetraploid parent way
back in it's parentage). We will see what comes from
these crosses. They might just be bee pods that I
pollenated over

Oh, and one more flat blooming iris that I grew is
Amaryllis. Another one that grew well but didn't open
properly for me.
