Re: AB: 1st bloom

Hi Donald,
Thanks for the post .  I am trying arils and arilbreds in our garden now.  I hope to get our first blooms this year.  I don't really have much expereince with these types of iris so I have been watching your posts over time with interest.
I know from my mother and sister down in central Texas that the drought really is taking a toll on things.  They don't expect many wildflowers this year and the iris are still very small.  Hopefully you will get a break on the weather front soon before things really start to cook for summer!  Good Luck!

The season starts. Not expecting much this year. The drought here and the
chewing damage throughout the winter and still ongoing is surely going to
have a negative effect. This one is way out of sequence. That may mean
that many that tend to bloom earlier aren't going to bloom at all. The
stalks on this plant appear to have only the terminal bud. It usually has
3-4 buds. On the other hand it looks like it has pollen this year. In all
the years I've had this one bloom it's never had pollen before. The
seedling is AT LAST X LUELLA DEE and has been posted before. I finally got
viable seeds from it and have three seedlings growing in pots now. It's a
dark red and I lightened the balance on the photo. It's a little too
bright, but the original was so dark the pattern didn't show and that's
visible when viewing it in the garden. Any trick to taking photos of dark
