So they should be gardenable in your area!   Valuable as breeding stock for their growth habits, even if yoHumoresque is a great example of the type I was talking about.  Produced by two California iris whose own parents came from colder regions, some of which had both northern heritage and the infusion of I. mesopotamica.

Actually, Sharon, the TB seedlings I hope to have blooming this year are from Keith Keppel's historic Humoresque (1961). It did nothing for a few years and then exploded in 2005 and has bloomed every year since. I have no idea what it crossed with to produce seed but I am very glad I kept the seed pod and decided to try and get them to germinate. If they do bloom, they will probably be nothing to look at but they will be mine!
