Hi Loic, Whew! that is a lot of dwarf irises you have planted. Are all of these your crosses? Are these all pumilas, or mdbs with some pumila in their background. When they are pumila I am particular interested in obtaining some when available. The pumilas have become neglected in the last 30-40 years when they discovered crossed with TBs they could get SDBs when these SDBs were ntercrossed among themselves they discovered that many SDB breeding broght small version and had to be classified as MDB. That is confusing, so one must be very careful when choosing parents that the right parents are being used to obtain fertile lines to get on with another generation without frustrations. Although many people try the odd crosses and it seems to me a lot of work to obtain a few. It is o.k. if you like to do this, but do keep in mind the pro's and the con's. I look forward to next spring when you will share your photos with us (with parentages included). Sounds like you will have a wonderful surprise. If you are interested in getting arilpums which the result of crossing tetraploid OGs and RCs with pure pumilas, you must do just that; cross tetraploid with tetraploid. Have fun.

hello Francesca

i guess i didn't press the proper buttons at the right time so my
answer got placed with my normal messages
i'm trying another path, hoping it will work better
i'm French as you guessed, moved to Holland 10 years ago.

Eitje will be the first iris with a Dutch mane in a very long time,
and i'll be happy to introduce it if it keeps it's promises!

You're apsolutely right with the pronounciation: "Eyetya"

I'll keep you posted when new ones bloom next spring.
i have replanted 1037 sdlgs in June and i hope 3/4 will resist the
rot and the frost!
Your husband might help me in finding names in Dutch!

Till later

> Good afternoon Loic, That is a very nice photo of your seedling! I
also like the parents chosen. It would be nice to see it in a clump
when you have one. I would like to see down into it. In other words
the photo taken at a higher height than the flower and down into the
heart. The colors should show beautifully. Send on more photos. You
have succeeded in sending the first one. My husband was raised in
Holland and so knows how to pronounce Eitje but how would you tell
the iris members how to pronounce it? Maybe "Eyetya" ?
Congratulations. Your last name is not Dutch but maybe French or
