Even though it has a hard time to stand strait, STARSHIP is a wonderful RE:
you can count on it every year and it blooms early enough not to be hurt by the frost
but it's a difficult number for breeding!
I don't know how Monty Byers managed to pollinate Scented Bubbles and get Monty's sweet blues with it.
I've pollinated 27 irises with it's pollen; result: nul
I've been luckier ( think it was luck, and a lot of patience!) with STARSHIP as a pod parent:
out of 41 dabbings, i got 4  pods: with Gladys Austin / Plum-Plum / Cerf-Volant / What Again.
They should bloom next spring...fingers crossed!
