Hi Francelle,

Sarah and I have grown Skating Party in our garden since 2004 and have yet to see it bloom.  Thanks for the photo to let us know it is still worth waiting for this beauty to shine!  We love seeing your photos on this group!

I want to thank Loic for looking up the genealogy of Skating Party.  Though I still don’t know if it carries any rebloom genes.


Skating Party has always been one of my favorites.  My very first pollen daubing attempt mated Skating Party with a rose pink-iris, Spring Fling.  I dreamed of large, beautifully ruffled, rose-pink  seedlings.  I got a big pod with lots of seeds.  They germinated well.  They made a row of very vigorous clumps.  Then they bloomed.  Small, plain, dirty whites, they were all absolutely awful!  My first seedlings!  It’s a wonder that I ever did any more pollen daubing.  Of course, I did, but I have never again used Skating Party as a parent.
