Thanks to all for the feedback on the SA dwarfs,,,, our office rug has been replaced and we haven't had too much access to computers lately, sorry for the slow replys.  Have about 30 different SA dwarfs now, most are unacceptable, some (usually out of Props) are OK and warrant watching.  thanks again for the input.

By any chance are these rebloomers?

Hello Mike, I myself am very fond of the little space agers.  I think the rarity of dwarf space agers, out weighs the narrowness and warrants intoduction.  If these are fertile, they would aid in creating more median SA's.  I have mixed feelings on "wide" flowers.  While it is more of the Modern look, I find that substance/budcount/vigor are more important in the garden performance respect.  If they are flounced, I don't mind them being a little narrower, I've noticed wide SA's with big flounces sometimes have a hard time opening, the flounce hangs up in the standards and sometimes snaps off when opening. Thanks for posting these.

Hi Mike

It's hard to appreciate littlies from a side view, how does the top view look

Been working on dwarf space age iris for over a decade and have not been really satisfied with the results.  Am not sure dwarfs look good as space agers....... attached is a flounced SDB (red violet/purple) and a petaloid MDB (yellow one) Input on space age dwarfs would be appreciated. ...does anybody think they are worth the effort?  To me, most end up being narrower then average and, in general, the appendages are very inconsistent.
