Subject: [iris-photos] hyb: Fun with COLOR BRITE and MESMERIZER PART 2 - REBLOOMER

 This seedling is basically a TB version of COLOR BRITE with a fire orange beard. The spring bloom stalk was more conventional but the fall bloom stalk in the photo is not. I thought about describing it as "daylily" branching but figured that might attract the ire of some Daylily growers. My second choice was "iris liliy" branching but catching up on old emails I will probably will call it Smilin' Bill branching since it had two branches leaving the main stem right at ground level. All the buds were consisitent in being double socketed.

The chicken wire in the background is necessary to protect it from the local critters that seem to consider it an incredible edible. Since the nibbling started at the top of the top bloom (32")  I suspect it to be our resident garden jackrabbit rather than the smaller cottontails. This is the only iris that we have ever had something eat the blooms, Maybe the beard is carrot orange?
