When I saw that seedling blossom at noon, I was quite taken with it colors.  It was a soft mauve-pink with lavender beards and center stripe.  When I came back in the evening the 100 degree heat had faded it, so the picture doesn’t do it justice.  It had a big secondary terminal bud that I had hoped to photograph the next day, but a bird got there first.  I am keeping it to see what it will do.  The parentage is Pink Lenox X Happenstance.

That pink has a nice beard, Francelle.  What's its heritage?  --  Griff

The last iris blooming in my garden yesterday were these two seedlings.  The temperature was 108 degrees F. today.  The hot, dry climate here gives us much to complain about, but I have had irises blooming from the middle of February until now, three and a half months.  With a little luck, I may have some again in October and November.
