In February, I had posted... "I currently have four seedlings from the cross Iris variegata (Beardsley clone) X Iris suaveolens var. rubromarginata that germinated Spring 2009 indoors under lights. I never got these planted outside, so they're still in the basement. Two of the bigger seedlings have each got two increase fans started. And now one of those bigger seedlings also has a flower bud emerging from the original fan..."

Well, no picture yet, but I couldn't wait to report that the second seedling with increase fans also appears to be sending up a flower stalk/bud now. I'm expecting it to emerge from the fan any day now... and will post pictures when it does.

I'm going to start a thread over at the Iris-Talk forum to discuss this latest development.

Thanks, Tom
