Subject: [iris-photos] photo: Arilmedian seedling and its weird 2 stalks
from one rhizome
This little arilmedian comes from a cross of a Paul Black SDB
and a tall arilbred (Eye of Newt X Genetic Artist). It has a small very
colorful flower. In the first photo, you will notice that the blooms look
very bunched together. That is misleading, as the fan sent up 2
stalks side by side. The second photo, taken before bloom, was an attempt
to show how the twin-like stalks were forming. This is maiden bloom
at one year old, so I hope this is not normal for this seedling. It is
probably the result of a late frost during formation, as several SDBs had 4
standards and 4 falls due to frost.
