Those are nice pictures of nice
seedlings, Robin. I love the color
of No. 2 and the lined falls on No. 3.
No. 1 and 3 seem to have wide enough falls. Pink Attraction is one of the most
miserable irises I have. It grows
poorly and puts three misformed flowers on stalks twelve to fifteen inches
high. I can’t bring myself to
cross it with anything. I am
usually inclined to pitch it, but I keep hoping it will do better.
Thanks for the pictures, and
congratulations on pretty seedlings. I didn’t use Romantic Evening this
spring. I’ve seen too many
seedlings that look almost exactly like it. Perhaps I’ll try it on one of my
pink seedlings next year.
