Thank you kindly ladies. I guess I am looking for a little more remarkable color. I love when I walk gardens and see an iris that I know without a doubt what it is before viewing the name tag. The color, shape or plant habit is so unique that you can pick it out anywhere. I am not sure that this seedling is like that. It is wonderful to hear that others like the color since that to me is the down side here. The substance is remarkable and the stalk is strong and lovely with nice bud count.............so I shall keep my eye on it for the next couple of years! I am with you on the Nicodemus iris. I have bought numerous varieties of her's from RockyTop Gardens in Eagleville, TN and I am always happy with the plant habit and their ability to reproduce. She has a nice line of introductions. Have a great day all!

Wonderful! I love the color too. Looks like a
keeper to me. Glad to see people using Passion for Lace. Is that a good pod
parent too? Barbara Nicodemus lives not too far from us.

I finally got a seedling out of Lunar Whitewash that is showing the wide
falls that I love. Pollen parent is Passion For Lace. Color is nothing
special, but it has great substance...held up lovely through a
rainstorm. Is a later bloomer. Just started blooming 1 week
ago. It has 8 buds on a nice stalk. This one has some qualities to
hang onto. I look forward to watching it progress over the next couple
of years. This is it's second year of foliage with a total of 12
increases at this time and 3 bloom stalks this year!
