Congrats on your first sdlg, Billy. It bears watching.
My first few seedlings are named after my 4 grandchildren, just garden names, not registered. They all come to visit "their" iris when I let them know it's about to bloom.

Subject: [iris-photos] Very first seedling, maiden bloom
This is my very first seedling to bloom. Sdlg: 08-01D, Moon Over Madness X Barbara Jean. 5 buds, tight branching. There are 3 other seedlings from this cross, but no bloom from them this year. I really like the style arms and interested in seeing what it does the next couple of years.
All comments or criticisms greatly appreciated.
