I always hear how inbreeding has led to so many weak irises. But not in
this case. I don't grow CARNIVAL RIDE, but RING AROUND ROSIE does
reasonably well here in 'the vale of despair' - bloomed last spring
without any protection from the "interesting" spring weather and is
alive. <g> Also makes viable pollen.

I also really like LOOKY LOO, similar pattern, but more contrast.

<A particularly interesting thing about this spectacular iris is that it
is a seedling of siblings itself crossed with a seedling of siblings
with the same parentage, so, very inbred. Ring Around Rosie is its own
more famous sibling. -- Griff>
