Adam, how fun that will be to see what 'Faraway Blue' is capable of as a parent! 
I grew it here a while back, but never crossed with it.  However, I can tell you - it grew quite well here;......... so making that cross is a VERY good thing for this side of the U.S. too!

Hi Linda and Betty,

I ran out and checked Faraway Blue, and yes, it does have pollen.

Now that no-one else has any offspring from it, I'm tempted to play!!

The flowers look healthy, especially the stigmatic lip. Sometimes
when I go to an iris with a great idea in my mind, and pollen in my
fingers, I'll get to that stigmatic lip, and there's crusty edges to
it . . . a tell tail sign that it's probably not going to set seed.
