They are, to the best of my knowledge, all of Ghio origin. Harold Peters 
sent me a goodly quantity 3 years ago, which I shared generously among the 
iris society members and other. Perhaps i should have kept them all :-)
I also had Ghio seed 1st or 2nd generation, from other sources. These were 
mixed, as I knew they were all seedlings and didn't see much point 
seperating them.

I have a packet labelled E15C with 32 seeds. I did only a little hand 
pollenating, and this should be one of them. The pollen will have come from 
another favourite, and very prolific blooming PCI, that I will post below. 
My photos are not brilliant. My son is working on a web page for me, and I 
will use my digital camera next bloom season, to get a lot more , hopefully 
better shots.

I have selected very carefully and only kept seed from the very best, and 
this year will make more effort to hand pollenate and label. I have about 
1000 seeds to share between BIS and SIGNA this year. This is also well 
selected, individually labelled seed, and some mixed.
Cheers, jan
