Good afternoon George,
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I would think it should grow in NE - mostly because it is such a vigorous grower and increases well. One of the parents has old historic genes which (I believe) contributes to it's robust growth.
Nola's is selling it for $45.00.  Here is a link to Nola's Iris Gardens webpage of my introductions. http://www.walking-p-bar.com/shopsite/New%20Introductions.html
I wish Sarah well in bidding and winning some of those new irises. The ?Prairie Gold-50 Years of Medians? sounds like it'll be an exciting time for both of you.

Good Afternoon Margie,

I love your photo postings and just had to comment on this latest 4-4-4 combo!  I have always enjoyed seeing 4 of everything on the iris flower ? even if a ?novelty?!  Do you think this introduction would grow in NE (AIS Region 5)?  If introducing this year ? how much is one rhizome going to cost?   My ten year-old daughter, Sarah and I would love to have one!  Do you need a ?test garden? in NE?  LOL 

We will be enjoying the ?Prairie Gold-50 Years of Medians? this next week in Lincoln, NE and Sarah has high hopes of bidding and winning some of the new intros at the auction.  Keep up the GREAT work!

GRAND CANYON GOLD is the first Tall Bearded iris Introduced with the 4-4-4 factor. (that I am aware of). I am introducing it for the first time this year through Nola's Iris Garden. It too is genetic, not weather related.  Year after year it has displayed these qualities for me.  It occurs in the terminal bud about 75 - 80 and/or 90% of the time. It makes for a very well rounded and somewhat larger flower - taking irises to a new level.

First photo is taken from above - - showing part of a 2 years growth of GCG  ....................notice all the 4-4-4 irises. 

Below is a close-up of GRAND CANYON GOLD.

Grand Canyon Gold - A Novelty Iris - Terminal bud has the 4-4-4 factor and is perfectly balanced. The top bud only will bloom with the 4-4-4 factor and is consistent on 75-80% of all stalks. M,L.  35" tall.   9-11 buds. Nicely ruffled and a vigorous grower!  Nice branching & unusual coloring too. Note: the warmer the temps get - - the deeper the lavender wash becomes on it's falls as it opens! The cooler the temps are - the falls will likely resemble the standards in it's coloring.  Seedling # SHFOF 02-1.  (Sapphire Hills x Pencil Sketch) x Flights of Fancy.
