> there is not a thing wrong with that Iris.

Well, yes there is. It has a tint over the entire fall area and the
styles that is close to the color of Murine - the old eye drops that
used to be common. That is also going up the midrib on the standards.
Not a good mix over the basic lavender blue. Muddies things up a lot.
As a bloom color, it's inferior to either of the parents. You have a
good eye. The cross is ZERZURA X JEHOSAPHAT'S RELIANCE. I knew when I
made the cross that was going to be one possible liability. The bloom
is vastly superior to Z for substance and a strong midrib though. As I
post this it still is holding up to the wind and Z would have been
completely destroyed hours ago. The signal area could use better
definition as well, but the color appears to be Navy blue and that
color is the best feature of the bloom, IMO.

A couple of the siblings are going to be much darker. That may
disquise the Murine effect on this one.

> What were you looking for

Actually to see if the pink aura of JR might really have some pink. I
didn't think so, but it might show up as pink in a seedling from this
cross if it's there. Also to see if the inherent substance from JR
would overcome the weakness in Z. Did in this bloom, anyway.

Your bloom is coming. Won't be long.
